Rice is a food staple that's enjoyed around the world. As a side dish to your favorite protein or as the star of the show when paired with vegetables, rice offers nutrition, versatility, and delicious taste.
There are many different types of rice available, and you'll find several of these varieties at your neighborhood Safeway store, including jasmine rice, basmati rice, arborio rice, wild rice, and the most popular, white rice and brown rice.
Classic white rice is ideal for chicken stirfry dishes, seafood sautees, tofu entrees, and beef casseroles. White rice also works perfectly when paired with curry and creole sauces and spices. And unless you want the spicy goodness of Mexican rice, white rice is often used with tacos, enchiladas, and burrito dishes as well.
Brown rice is a common substitute for white rice and is known to be more nutritious in terms of a higher fiber and magnesium content, according to healthline.com.
So which should you select, white rice or brown rice? The taste and texture differences are usually minimal so nutritional needs are often the deciding factor. Stop by Safeway today to pick up the rice you need to make mealtime complete.
