Since we missed the Minute Rice event at George Brown College in Toronto, Minute Rice was so kind to send us a few boxes of their 100% Natural Instant Rice to try. Minute Rice brings convenience and nutrition to your meals. It is a easy, precooked, parboiled long grain rice with no cooking required. In just 5 minutes, you’ll have fluffy, delicious rice that is easy to prepare and healthy too!

Working with Minute Rice® 100% Natural Instant Rice, for example, Chef Higgins helped create a wholesome, all-natural and easy Veggie Rice Lasagna Loaf recipe dish that takes only 10 minutes to prepare for the oven.
“When time is an issue, instant rice is an excellent solution for busy moms and people in a rush,” said Chef Higgins, who is also a judge on the Food Network’s Chopped Canada and former personal chef for the Queen Mother.

Contrary to common misconceptions, instant rice is as nutritious as long cook rice,” said Norma D’Onofrio, Senior Brand Manager, Minute Rice, explaining that instant rice is long grain rice that is simply pre-cooked, and then dried, in order to significantly cut down on the cooking time required by consumers.
With “pre-cooked rice” as its only ingredient, Minute Rice is 100% natural and Non-GMO Project Verified. Available in two varieties – Premium Long Grain White Rice and Premium Whole Grain Brown Rice – Minute Rice takes only five minutes to prepare for white rice and 10 minutes for brown rice.
“Minute Rice is quick, convenient and healthy, turning out just right every time,” D’Onofrio said. “It’s prepared in a fraction of the time of long cook rice, giving you back the time you’d spend in the kitchen so you can focus on what’s really important.”
