Flavor Name: Toasted Almond RiceSize: 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.

You can find recipes at the Near East website for other ideas.

Flavor Name: Whole WheatSize: 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.

Flavor Name: CurrySize: 6.25-Ounce (Pack of 12) Verified Purchase
We have been buying this rice for a couple of years and really love it. It is a beautifully spiced blend, not hot, and goes well with many things. I make a lot of veggie stews and this goes great with that. We also put it with fish and even veggie burgers. The couscous version is delicious too. I used to buy this in Wholefoods, but they haven't had it for some time now and so of course, I looked here. This is a great price too and with free prime shipping it's a really good deal! Highly recommend all the Far East rice and couscous mixes.

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!

YUM! So glad to find this on Amazon as I can't find it in the any local stores anymore and it tastes great! Makes such a fast, easy healthy dinner: Just add a couple of diced chicken breasts to the rice as it is cooking and a complete dinner is done as soon as the rice is done! Highly recommend!!

We're so happy to hear you were finally able to find our Curry Rice Pilaf again on Amazon! Thanks for being such a fan and recommending it to others.

Nice flavor. Simple to make. Good price for a home made, hot side dish.
I use it alone, or
I pay more for other flavors of Near East Rice Pilaf at my local grocer. Then I mix one box of the other flavor with one box of this 'original' and prepare it together. It's enough for a larger group of people, aqnd taste more interesting.

Flavor Name: Spanish RiceSize: 6.75 Ounce (Pack of 12) Verified Purchase
This is the absolute best, very tasty, not a hint of that processed foods flavor that makes so many boxed foods horrible. Our local stores have stopped carrying this, but they carry the rice a roni spanish rice, how stupid is that! I was so thrilledto find it on amazon, I ordered a whole case! Quick to make, just boil water, add some butter (real butter) and the rice and spices mix, and 20 minutes later you have some spanish rice that even rivals (and in some cases surpasses) what's in many Mexican restaurants!
