easy risotto recipes How is your fall going? Well, it’s almost fall, and with the back to school schedule it seems like it is.

Fall means cozy socks, changing leaves and warm meals with family and friends. Also, during September it’s National Rice Month and rice dishes are great for both  potlucks and everyday heart warming, easy foods.

It’s one of the reasons I am loving Minute® Ready to Serve Rice. It’s ready in 60 seconds and you can enjoy it for breakfast, lunch, dinner and desserts. Minute® Ready to Service Rice is a time saving secret that will get your home-style meal on the table fast.

I was  sent  a box of Minute®  Ready to Serve Rice and a few other kitchen goodies (like a time, potholder and rubber scraper) which I was able to whip up a long loved comfort meal in only about 10 minutes.

I made a quick lunch for two of 10 minute Chicken and Mushroom Risotto with Minute® Ready to Serve Brown Rice. Yep… risotto for lunch, and made in 10 minutes.

Now keep in mind this is not traditional risotto. But it definitely had the taste and richness of the long cooked dish, without all the hassle. And if you are cooking for 1 simply reduce the recipe in half (I would also guess you could double it for more guests).

Minute® Ready to Serve Rice is also a great portable solution to bring as a lunch to work. Pair the rice with leftover veggies and meats. It’s perfect for on-the-go.

There are multiple varieties to choose from like Whole Grain options of Brown Rice, Brown & Wild Rice and Multi-Grain Medley, Jasmine Rice, White Rice, Chicken Rice Mix, Yellow Rice Mix, Fried Rice Mix and Black Beans & Rice. All are ready in just 60- 90 seconds.
