I bought a bag of the Uncle Ben’s Garden Vegetable Ready Rice. It proclaims “with peas, carrots, and corn”.
I didn’t really read the nutritional facts until I got it home. Woah! 830 milligrams of sodium per serving, two servings per bag. That wasn’t going to do! I had some rice already made, so I mixed the two together. At least, that cut the sodium level down.
I’m glad that I made vegetables to go with it. I think there were 5 carrot pieces, 4 peas, and about 8 corn kernels in my serving. Uncle Ben’s garden must be really wimpy if this is all that it can produce.
It was a tasty bag of rice without a plasticky taste. It cooked well. But, it had way too much sodium and didn’t live up to the Garden Vegetable name. More vegetables, Uncle Ben!
