Raise your hand if you have a hard time coming up with excellent, nutritious, and simple weeknight meals.

The Mahatma ® Ready to Serve Rice comes in 3 ranges consisting of Garlic and Olive Oil, Cilantro Lime, and Jasmine Rice and they are all Non-GMO. The finest part about these is that you don’t have to fret about boiling water or sticky rice (a typical issue I often have when cooking rice). All you have to do is serve the pouches according to the microwave instructions on the packaging and the rice is ready to go in simply 90 seconds!

I chose to make an Italian Beef and Rice Skillet using the Mahatma ® Ready to Serve Garlic and Olive Oil Rice. The garlic flavor in the rice paired completely with the other tastes in the meal! This one-pan meal comes together so rapidly and is hearty and soothing! To start, I sauteed some onion and lean ground beef. Then I threw in some bell peppers. I heated the rice in the microwave and after that included it to the pan along with diced tomatoes. To complete it off, I mixed in some Italian cheese into the rice and melted more on the top which’s it!

If you wish to prep ahead, you can slice the onions and peppers ahead of time, however I simply chopped them up quickly while the beef was cooking. This dinner couldn’t be easier thanks to Mahatma ® Ready to Serve Rice and was so delicious. It made for terrific leftovers to take to work too!
