Trader Joe’s Rice Medley Review

Trader Joe's Rice Medley

Rice is a pantry staple, but it isn’t always fun to make. If you don’t have a rice cooker or package of instant rice on hand, you’ll have to watch your pot closely to make sure your rice doesn’t burn. If you’re looking for a faster, simpler solution, however, the Trader Joe’s Rice Medley is perfect for you.

There are three bags of rice per box, with each bag containing about two servings. While it’s possible to cook this frozen rice on the stovetop, the fastest way to heat it up is in the microwave. It took us just three minutes to cook ours. We didn’t have to stir it, flip the bag, or do anything fancy; we just tossed the bag in the microwave, let it cook, and then transferred it to a bowl.

This is a wild rice medley, and because of that, this rice is less plain than you might think. It has a bit of an earthy flavor to it, which means it won’t go with everything, but it would be a great addition to certain dishes. We think this would taste amazing with the Trader Joe’s falafel, for example.

As for the texture, you’d never guess that this came out of the microwave. The rice is soft, but it isn’t mushy at all. It has a great natural fragrance to it, and you can tell that the rice was rinsed before it was packaged. Basically, it’s perfectly cooked rice without all the hassle.

The Trader Joe’s Rice Medley is an amazing option if you’re looking for an easier way to make rice at home. It tastes just like freshly cooked rice, and it’s ready to go in just three minutes. As long as you’re on board with the earthy flavors, this rice is something you’ll want in your freezer.
