Super easy to cook, and very tasty.

While we love the product, I doubt we can finish all 12 boxes by the August 2014 pull date.

Flavor Name: Toasted Almond RiceSize Name: 6.6 Ounce (Pack of 12)
While I still serve Near East rice pilafs as a side dish, I now fix them for a quick and healthy weeknight meal! For most of them, I cook as directed in my small rice cooker (Cuisinart CRC-400 4-Cup Rice Cooker). Five minutes after I hear the water starting its boil, I add a cup of cut-up cooked protein (leftover chicken, turkey, chickpeas, beans, whatever) and a cup or so of chopped veggies (fresh broccoli, carrots, onions, frozen peas). When the rice cooker light tells me the rice is done, so is everything else! (If you use a long-cooking whole grain pilaf, you will want to add these ingredients later in the rice-cooking cycle to avoid over cooking.) I guess you could also mix the meat and veggies in after cooking them separately, if you prefer. This is enough to serve three adults (unless they are really, really hungry.)

I like the Toasted Almond mix so much that I often add nuts myself to the other flavors; the crunch adds interest.

Flavor Name: Whole WheatSize Name: 6 Ounce (Pack of 12) Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful alternative to rice. It is easy to make. I use the microwave instructions. I used to buy it in the local grocery stores. But I haven't been able to find it. By chance I found it on Amazon and because there was no shipping cost, it cost the same as I used to spend in the store. I love this and it is healthy and high in fiber. My kids even love it.

I've enjoyed Near East rice pilaf since I was a child and I'm so happy that Amazon offers it at a more affordable price (it means I can eat it more often!). It goes great with poultry and fish--I often eat it just by itself!

We make this rice all the time. It has a mild flavor that compliments many other dishes. It takes 25-30 minutes to make, but its really easy to put it all in a sauce pan and let it cook.

Flavor Name: Wild Mushrooms and HerbsSize Name: 6.3 Ounce (Pack of 12) Verified Purchase
We especially like the Wild Mushroom and Herb Rice Pilaf. Tastes great. Very easy to prepare, especially if you take the microwave approach. Mix with water, add butter (or an alternative), 16 to 20 minutes on high, and you're done. The only drawback to this product: it's hard to find in stores. Thankfully, there are online purchasing options, including through Amazon and direct from Near East.

Flavor Name: Spanish RiceSize Name: 6.75 Ounce (Pack of 12) Verified Purchase
This rice is hard to find in our area of TN. Goes great with kabobs of all kinds and as a side dish. We love that it is available through Amazon. Fast shipping from the vendor and hassle free.
