Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks: Uncle Ben’s Converted Rice
If you enter Uncle Ben’s Converted Rice into my search bar, you’ll find I’ve written about it many, many times. I just checked, and if Google is to be trusted, it’s 339 times I’ve mentioned this product. That goes up to 340 after this is posted, and for anyone who’s wondering, Uncle Ben’s is not paying me anything to write this. Is anyone wondering why I like this rice so much?
If you’re a South Beach Dieter, you know the South Beach Diet recommends brown rice. I like brown rice, and do eat it in things like Brown Rice with Cashews and Herbs or Brown and Wild Rice with Pine Nuts and Thyme. But there are dishes that need white rice. South Beach is all about eating foods that are low on the Glycemic Index. (Even if you’re not a South Beach Dieter, it’s something doctors are paying more and more attention to.)
I love knowing that Uncle Ben’s Converted Rice is one of the lowest glycemic index types of rice you can buy. (Be sure not to get the *instant* type, which is not low glycemic.) The word “converted” in the name refers to the fact that the rice is parboiled, something that makes it more nutritious. It’s delicious too, and was supposed to have been Julia Child’s favorite type of rice.
Here are some of my favorite things to make with Uncle Ben’s Converted Rice that you might like to try. Happy cooking!
