This week at my local grocery, I ran across a new product in the refrigerated section -miracle rice and miracle pasta. The packaging made me a little skeptical, but consider me hooked! This zero calorie rice takes on the flavor of any seasoning or sauce. I tried some mild green chilies, diced jalapenos, and chicken stock. Saute the rice in the sauce mixture, until it is fully absorbed into the rice.
While the texture is a little different, it’s a great way to serve a very light side dish. I rarely eat white carbs like pasta and rice, especially at night. This is a great way to be able to enjoy some traditionally high carb sides.
I look forward to trying the Miracle Pasta with pesto, veggies and shrimp. Alfredo and other cream based sauces would be great, too.
