Lebanese Rice Refreshed

I’ve often wanted to explore Middle Eastern Cuisine with so many regional dishes coming from all of North Africa (Morocco, Algeria, Tunisia, Libya, and Egypt), the Gulf States (Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Qatar, Oman, Bahrain, UAE), Levant Countries (Syria, Lebanon, Jordan, Israel, Palestine, Turkey), Iran, Iraq, Kuwait, and even though not technically Middle East, Pakistan, Afghanistan.
I admit that I know little about foods from this region so it is exciting for me to try a new dish! I chose a rice dish because to me rice appears in so many cultures and each one has a different slant. It’s like when I go to a new restaurant, I’ll order their crab cakes and that gives me a feel of their style. Hey it works for me :).

Sometimes rice seems to have a mind of its own when it comes to cooking. Timing and temperature can make or break a rice dish.
I love these new varieties of Minute® Ready to Serve Rice.

All new varieties such as Brown & Quinoa and Basmati Rice, as well as Whole Grain options of Brown Rice, Brown & Wild Rice and Multi-Grain Medley. Also, there’s Jasmine Rice, White Rice and flavorful mixes. All the varieties can be found here.

These portable individual cups make great additions to school or work place lunches. Heat for 60 seconds and you have a delicious side dish you can eat straight from the cup. Add a protein like a tuna sandwich and you can enjoy a wholesome meal on the go.

Fast meal solutions work great on busy weeknights too!

You can find out more about all the Minute Rice options at their website.

Lebanese Rice is pretty straightforward with simple ingredients. I love the addition of vermicelli and toasted almonds. I switched it up a little by using vegetable stock instead of water. This rice turned out absolutely delicious!
