Healthy and Wholesome Millie Rice

Healthy and Wholesome Millie Rice

Millie rice is a savory and wholesome meal that has its origins in South Africa. It is a combination of either rice or broken rice, coarsely ground corn, and a protein component – like black beans or other lentils. For this recipe, the preferred rice of choice is parboiled basmati rice: parboiled rice is a good source of calcium, fiber iron, and protein; and basmati grain is non-hybrid and non-GMO. These base ingredients are cooked with a selection of spices and herbs to make a hearty and healthy meal! Of course, to make it even more nutritious, we added some delicious vegetables to the recipe that add a crunch with a burst of vitamins and minerals!
