If you are getting tired of having potatoes with your dinner, I discovered these rice blends at the Bulk Barn, and they are delicious!
Top left: Golden Jewel Blend: Israeli couscous, enriched macaroni, split baby garbanzo beans, quinoa
Top right: Aztec Blend: colusari red rice, long grain brown rice, split peas, amaranth.
Bottom: Jade Blend: Bamboo rice, wheat berries, basmati rice, green lentils, split baby garbanzo beans, Daikon radish seeds.
(* I love the way the radish seeds 'pop' when you bite into them.)
I can't say which one I like the best, which ever one I have cooked up is the winner that day. They make a good lunch idea. I've been trying to watch what I eat and cut back on potatoes a bit. One of my true weaknesses especially fried or mashed with LOTS of butter..mmmmmmmmmm
These blends are really filling but despite all the various ingredents they are a bit on the bland side so you can choose to flavour them all you want. My current favourite is the Chili Lime Sansel from Victorian Epicure. It's not overly expensive and you only have to use a little bit so my bottle is lasting forever. LOL
Oh if you order online you have to type in a consultant's name, use Arlene Roberts. ;o) That's my sister.
I'm going to experiment with some others I'll let you know how they turn out.
