Most days, I have to squeeze lunch into just a few minutes. I have a huge list of things that I have to accomplish and spending a lot of time dealing with lunch prep just doesn’t fit into my schedule.

Leftovers are an option…at least when I have them on hand. And, I do like a quick sandwich from time to time—but certainly not every day! When I want a tasty meal in a flash, I look to Minute Ready to Serve to help me whip up something amazing.

With Minute Ready to Serve , you simply heat it in the microwave and eat it right out of the cup! Great for a quick lunch, a better-for-you snack or an easy add-on at dinner. You can serve it up as is or for an extra boost of goodness, add veggies, proteins or your favorite sauces. Mix it up and make it yours!

Look for three varieties of new Minute Ready To Serve Rice at your local Publix.

  • Garlic & Olive Oil Jasmine Rice
  • Cilantro & Lime Jasmine Rice
  • Southwest Pinto Beans

One of my favorite ways to enjoy this rice on a busy day is this recipe for 5 Minute Hawaiian Rice. It’s big on flavor without spending a ton of time with meal prep. Heck, I can have this ready in less time that reheating boring leftovers.

Just heat up a cup of Minute Garlic & Olive Oil Jasmine Rice and mix in some ham, pineapple and green onion and lunch is ready to go. Sprinkle on some macadamia nut for a little extra flavor and crunch and you’ll have a meal ready in just minutes.

Stop by Publix and pick up a few ingredients and enjoy this recipe when you need a meal lickity split!
