ARLINGTON, VA – USA Rice chefs have created five new rice recipes, designed to be affordable to all, that cover multiple meals and incorporate various varieties of U.S.-grown rice types.  The new recipes are designed to work for breakfast, appetizers, side dishes, and main dishes.

“Consumers look for the best use of their money, and while most are aware of the affordability of U.S.-grown rice, the next step to encouraging rice usage for shoppers is to provide easy-to-prepare recipes that emphasize the economics, ” says Michael Klein, USA Rice vice president of marketing and domestic promotion.  “I am excited to have USA Rice offer these recipes as resources for cost-savings but for high-quality, nutritious food, too.”

The new rice recipes include:  breakfast rice burritos, fast-fix meatloaf & roasted carrots, Cajun sausage and rice, Mediterranean rice salad, and an Italian pepperoni rice bake.  The cost of each recipe ranges from $6-$10 and yields four generous servings.
“While these recipes can be enjoyed by all, they’re especially suited for folks on a tight budget, namely students, millennials, and working families,” said Klein.

The five new rice dishes are available to consumers through the ThinkRice online consumer recipe database.
