Disclosure: Post sponsored by Mirum but all opinions are my own.

We’d all love to be able to sit down with the family to a healthy, home-cooked meal every night. But let’s face it, sometimes it’s not that easy to make it work. Between work, chores, and juggling everyone’s schedules, it’s hard enough just to get the whole family around the table. Planning and cooking a meal from scratch on top of that seems almost impossible.

  1. Thanks, Corey. This gives me ideas for using any of the Knorr Rice Sides!

  2. I may be wrong, but one serving must be pretty small, since Knorr Rice Sides contain a lot of sodium, which isn’t reflected in the Nutr. Info. per serving here. What is the size of 1 serving? This DOES sound good!

    1. Hi Angelina! This recipe was provided by Knorr, and stated 4 servings. I would just divide it into 4 equal portions. As far as the sodium goes, the entire package of Knorr rice only serves 2.5 people, so you aren’t getting an entire serving of the rice, so it will be a little bit lower than a full serving of the rice. I hope that helps.
