The Best Rice Mixes
Best Wild Rice Mix
Uncle Ben's Long Grain and Wild Rice Herb Roasted Chicken
"This mix is more robust than most wild rices," observed a participant, who also loved the little chunks of carrots in the mixture. "It has a very healthy taste because it's nutty and a little dense," agreed a second panelist. For some, the difference in textures was a plus: "I grew up on this kind of side dish," explained one person. "I like the combination of chewy wild rice and tender long-grain rice." But others found it a little too much work to eat.
