The first product we tried was the white basmati rice. I actually used this to make some Mexican fried rice, and it turned out very well. This was my first time eating basmati rice, so I was very pleased to see that the entire family enjoyed that flavor, and we won't have any issues using basmati rice in the future. I'll share the recipe below for this Mexican rice, but first let me tell you about the other two products.
The Himalayan Pink Rock Salt was another new one for me. In fact, I was amazed at all the health benefits of this salt! Did you know it can help lower blood pressure, improve circulation, help your intestines absorb nutrients, and prevent muscle cramping, just to name a few benefits?! It's very easy to use; it comes crushed and ready to sprinkle on any food, or even use in food preparation. Definitely something you'll want to try!
The last product is the raw cane sugar, again a product I have never used before. If you're familiar with raw cane sugar, then you know the darker the sugar, the more rich the flavor. As you can see by the pictures, this is a nice molasses-colored sugar that definitely gives you that great flavor. It dissolves quickly in hot or cold beverages, so even if you're wanting to add a bit to your iced tea, it will dissolve.
As you can tell, we were very pleased with all three products from The Real Co. If you're looking for organic, natural, single-origin food products, I recommend you check them out. And now, as promised, here's the recipe for Mexican Rice using The Real Co's white basmati rice!
Heat olive oil, add garlic and onion and sauté until onions are translucent. Stir in rice, toast 2-3 minutes. Add in tomato sauce and broth, simmer 2 minutes. Stir in corn, carrots and peas, chili powder and cumin. Bring to boil, reduce heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until rice is cooked. Add tomatoes, serve immediately.
