VeeTee Rice is our go-to brand for pre-cooked rice for many reasons! It is available at a wide variety of retailers nationwide (we grab it at Stop & Shop) or online! Plus, they have so many varieties! We used their brown rice with quinoa in this dish, but you could use their basmati rice in a dish like this or their whole grain rice in a dish like this. Wherever you would use rice or a grain, VeeTee has you covered!
