Lundberg Family Farms is a family-owned and operated business that has been growing great tasting rice since 1937. Today, the third Lundberg generation continues the heritage of farming with care for the soil, wildlife, air and water. The company offers more than 150 rice products.
The Roasted Brown Rice Couscous from Lundberg Family Farms is a great wheat-free alternative to traditional couscous. The couscous is gluten free and made with 100% organic brown rice. It comes in four flavors: Plain Original, Savory Herb, Roasted Garlic & Olive Oil, and Mediterranean Curry. The Plain Original is USDA certified organic and the other three are certified organic by the California Certified Organic Farmers (CCOF). The couscous is made by gently crushing the rice into tiny granules and fire roasting them to add an extra nutty flavor.
Mediterranean Curry. My daughter summed it up perfectly: deeeeelicious! I usually add some stir fried onions, garlic and veggies to plan couscous but the Mediterranean Curry did not need any additions. This is my personal couscous favorite! One serving provides 150 calories, 1.5 g of fat, and 3 g each of protein and fiber.
The other three varieties were similarly flavorful and delicious. We ate the Savory Herb and the Roasted Garlic & Olive Oil plain and added some veggies to the Plain Original. They made for wholesome side dishes, and my whole family loved them. And I feel good knowing that they are getting the nutritional benefits of 100% whole grain.
Lundberg Family Farms can be found at their online store and at select retailers. Connect with the company on Facebook.
