Quick and Easy Whole Grains

You might be interested in adding more whole grains to your meals as they add flavor and texture to dishes while also helping to keep you feeling full. However, many whole grains have a long cook time making them more difficult to include in meals when you don’t have much time to cook! That’s where Minute® Ready to Serve Rice comes in handy.
