    Could you write a hub on side dishes with Rice-A-Roni and vegetables?

    I add a large sweet onion and sweet pepper to Spanish Rice-A-Roni.  I would love to try some of your side dishes with vegetables added to other Rice-A-Ronis.

    I'm not sure that this is entirely healthy. Too short to make a hub about (unless I ramble on about the cost of groceries, then the hub turns into a political rant about the War of the Generations... damn baby boomers...)
    I keep these things around in case I'm snowed in or something.
    Chicken & Broccoli Rice-A-Roni, and one can of chicken chunks. They're by the tuna in the store, I'm not sure the brand.
    Fry up the chicken in some olive oil, then put it in the R-A-R. Use the broth from the can instead of water for the rice.
    I do usually have some broccoli around too, steam that & throw it in.
    I think R-A-R has too much added sodium, so I don't cook this up too often. smile
    It's better to make your own R-A-R from scratch.

    Hi - so sorry. I see that you wrote this request 2 months ago and I just now noticed it. I tend to add veggies to Rice-A-Roni (I use a healthy version that is made with brown rice) whenever I have leftovers and just match the veggie to the flavor of the rice dish. For instance if I have leftover fajita veggies, I add them to the Spanish Rice version. If I have leftover roasted veggies I can add them to almost any flavor rice but they tend to go particularly well with the chicken or garlic flavors rather than Spanish or almond rice. Leftovers from take out Chinese are great with almond Rice-A-Roni.

    Personally, I don't use any prepackaged foods like "Rice a Roni". I try to cook with one pretty simple rule in mind. If it comes in a box and has ingredients that I can't immediately identify, it doesn't go on my guests plate. Next time you're in the mood for the "San Fransisco Treat" try this instead. Your body will thank you for it.
    1 Cup Basmati rice.
    1 Tbsp butter
    1 Tbsp olive oil
    1/2 yellow onion, diced
    2 cloves fresh garlic, finely grated
    1 carrot finely diced
    1 stalk celery, finely diced.
    1 red, yellow or orange pepper diced
    2 cups organic chicken stock
    1 pinch saffron threads.
    Kosher salt & fresh ground pepper to taste.
    So here's how you do it. Get a nice sauce pan with cover on the stove. Add olive oil and melt butter. Add rice and sautee over medium hi heat until it starts to turn color and smell fragrant (nutty). toss in veggies and cook about a minute more. Add chicken stock and saffron. cover, reduce to simmer and leave it alone for about 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat, let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with fork, adjust S&P seasoning and serve. Not only are you creating a delicious healthy side from scratch but you're also saving yourself money, not to mention hidden sodium, MSG and other fun things like that. I know this recipe leaves out the "roni" but if you really miss it, chop up a few strands of vermicelli and up the chicken stock by about 1/4 cup. Be sure to visit my hubs for other great recipe ideas.
