Bistro Blend Rice Medley (Mix)

This "gourmet" combination of various grains is sold in bulk at our local Winco, but it dawned on me later after having purchased the mix of course, that I could buy the grains individually and make a homemade version. Which in turn meant I could reduce the cost. Light bulb moment! Please help me decide if I should classify this as a stolen recipe...? ;) If you have difficulty locating the red rice (I found a bag at our local Asian market), substitute Wehani, short grain brown rice or similar unhulled rice. Great for gift giving: place 2 cups of the mix in a canning jar or similar container, print out or hand write the cooking instructions, attach bow or raffia and the instructions to the container.

directions

  • Combine ingredients in a bowl and transfer to an airtight container.
  • To prepare: Place 2 cups of filtered water and 1 cup of the rice/grain mix in a saucepan. (Note: stock or broth can replace the water, depending on your menu.).
  • Bring water to boil, reduce heat and simmer 50 minutes.
  • Once rice is cooked, remove pot from the burner and set aside, covered for 15 minutes.
  • If desired, season with salt and pepper. If you want to stir in a little bit of extra virgin olive oil to the rice, be my guest.
