For the longest time, I did not know what to call this cinnamon sweet rice with fresh fruit. I was brainstorming with my friends to determine what I was going to make, because I really wanted to make something fun and new, rather than something like a burrito bowl.
I was originally going to go with sweet rice balls, similar to arancini, but my deep fry skills are not something to be desired, so I was really wracking my brain.
Next on the list was rice pudding, but I hate puddings, of all types, so that was a non-starter. But really, it gave me the idea to make this sweet rice, something that wasn’t mushy, or too liquid-y, but had a gentle sweetness, and paired perfectly with fresh seasonal fruit!
I headed over to my local HEB (seriously, it’s only a half-mile away, looooove it) and grabbed some Riceland Boil-in-Bag to use for this recipe because it is so freaking convenient. Just ten minutes in boiling water and BAM! beautiful, perfectly cooked rice. I call that a win.
Seriously though, I love Riceland because it’s owned and grown by American family farmers. I love supporting hometown businesses like this, especially when they put out such an amazing, quality product.
The Boil-in-Bag is so simple to use. Just fill a large pot with water, submerge the bag completely, bring it to a boil, and wait ten minutes. No need to cover, no need to guess. Just perfect rice, every time.
