4 Days of Giveaways: Village Harvest Rice & Grains

by Sally on March 18, 2012

This is the final day of my 4 Days of Giveaways! I’m hosting a different giveaway every day.

I don’t know about you, but the first time I made quinoa for my family, they were not thrilled.

Sure, they liked it in these cookies, but straight-up quinoa did not exactly go over like gangbusters (though these quinoa pizza bites are on the menu for this week!).

That’s why I was so excited to sample these frozen whole grain blends from Village Harvest at a food expo last fall, especially the ones that combine familiar grains with left-of-center varieties–like Brown Rice & Red Quinoa and Farro & Red Rice. Even better, most of the cooking’s already been done. They’re pre-cooked, frozen, and ready to heat.

Their frozen whole grains are available at Whole Foods Markets, though not yet in every state. But Village Harvest also makes a line of dry rices and grains that are stocked in many major supermarkets and include Golden Quinoa, Jasmine Rice, and Basmati Rice. (Find out if your store carries them here.)

Today’s giveaway: A coupon for a FREE Village Harvest product to three readers.

To enter, leave a comment at the end of this post telling me your favorite grain side dish. To increase your odds, you can also:

  • “Like” Real Mom Nutrition on Facebook here, then leave me another comment telling me that you did.
  • “Like” Village Harvest Rice on Facebook here, then leave me another comment telling me that you did.
  • Tweet about the giveaway, then leave me another comment that includes a copy of your tweet.

The giveaway ends Thursday, March 22 at noon. I’ll choose a winner at random through Random.org‘s number generator.

Disclaimer: Village Harvest provided me with the coupons, plus one for myself.

I LOVE bulgar, and I generally make it into a pilaf with veggies diced up really small and sauteed and then add the bulgar. YuM! And maybe some golden raisins in there too!

Rice Pilaf for me with mixed veggies.

My husband who doesn’t like alot of the good for you food . He will not eat cheese unless on pizza he will not eat salads at all any kind or any fruit but apple black berries alittle cause we lived in oregon and they grew wild I myself love to make jams so he would collect blackberries for me and aaeat some. One day I saw some your basmati rice and for some “only God knows way” He loves it so I have been searching for some recipes for it I usually just make it with sow sauce or alone or with butter. I just want somethinh different.
I am just writing to say thank you for your good for you things.
