Food Find & New Recipe: Multi-Grain Medley

Food Find & New Recipe: Multi-Grain Medley



Minute® Rice has stepped up its game and brought out a multi-grain medley, a mix of brown, red and wild rice with quinoa. Nothing else added. Gluten-free as well. Something I liked? It is portioned into 4 inner bags, each bag contains 1 cup uncooked rice mix, which makes about 1 1/3 cups once cooked. (A bag is 2 servings – which means 1 serving in hiking terms)

As with instant brown rice, using a bit less water than called for goes a long way, as does cooking it in a pot, rather than FBC. But if you are willing to wait at least 15 minutes, you can prepare it FBC.




Multi-Grain Pilaf


1 pouch Multi-Grain Medley

¼ cup freeze-dried vegetables

1 stick broth concentrate

1 packet olive oil (1 Tbsp)

Parmesan cheese packets (3-4)


One Pot Meal -

Bring 1 cup water, broth concentrate and oil to boil, add in rice and vegetables. Lower flame to low, stir and cover. Let simmer for 5 minutes, take off stove, wrap tightly and let sit for 10 minutes (a pot cozy works well). Toss rice with as much cheese as desired.


Pack rice mix and vegetables in a quart freezer bag.

Bring water to boil. Add broth concentrate and oil to freezer bag, place bag in a FBC Cozy, add in water, stir and seal tightly. Let sit for at least 15 minutes. Add cheese to taste.

Serves 1.

    What a great find for camping! How was the flavor?

  2. Carol, as long as you flavor it with broth, it is great :-)

  3. Looks delish and great for hikes or camping. Excellent find!

  4. As I love minute rice anyway I can imagine this being a great addition to my camp kitchen. I guess the broth really turns up the flavour an extra notch

We'd love to hear your thoughts!
