More than meets the eye!

I know from other ocado comments that other people are also exploring the paleo and low carb way of eating. This brand of par-boiled rice is very good if you are trying out the Natural Health Diet which is a variation of paleo. If so, you will be exploring the mysteries of 'safe starches' Some of the rice starch has been removed by the process. Also letting the rice cool overnight in the fridge increases the amound of 'resistant starch' in the rice. This is all very good for reducing glucose spikes for us but also very good for the beneficial bacteria in our digestive tracts. Not everyone wants, or indeed suits, a permanent ketogenic or very low carb way of eating. Hence the current low carb exoration of starchy foods which may be less damaging to health. White rice fits very well into this category. Ironically, this is less for our direct sake as for the sake of those bacteria that co-habit our bodies! So I'm quite pleased to have this rice available.

The best!

A little more expensive but definitely the best rice on the market! You can't go wrong with this!

Pouring spout

The rice is fine, but the oh-too-clever pouring spout is a pain

Good old Uncle Ben

This is a long grain rice for when I don't want to bother making basmati rice. I tend to make this using the double water to rice method and it always comes out great. Good wiith Chilli.

The traditional method involves the slow simmering of a whole chicken, but today it can be prepared with less time and effort.

Tofu and Mushroom Stroganoff

This recipe gives the traditional stroganoff a tasty vegetarian twist by substituting tofu chunks for the meat.
