Normally I cook everything from scratch but sometimes a gal needs a break, you know, and I make a side dish from a box.
I generally have success with "rice boxes" but this one... it tasted good but looked nothing like the "serving suggestion."
Blech. Looks like dog food! Would a dog even eat it? If I'd rinsed off all the sauce and piled it on a teeny tiny spoon, and enlarged the picture, it might have looked more like it.
I had better luck with the dirty rice.
However the red and green flecks shown on the box were almost invisible in real life. The green you see is what I added (green onions, bell pepper, and peas). I can spot one pale red fleck in the middle of my spoonful.
Till next time.
