Rice Done 7 Ways With USA Rice | Food Bloggers of Canada

This post is sponsored by USA Rice Canada.

Fun food fact: Did you know that U.S.-grown rice accounts for most of the rice consumed in Canada?

Because we cannot produce rice here in Canada, U.S.-grown rice is as local as it gets for us Canadians! Not only is U.S.-grown rice high-quality, nutritious, and low in calories, it’s also naturally gluten, sodium, and cholesterol-free.

Rice is an affordable staple in many of our pantries because it’s so versatile and can be used to make a wide range of dishes. From salads, sides, and main dishes all the way to desserts, rice is one of those ingredients you always want to have on hand.

All of these reasons are why we teamed up with USA Rice Canada to ask seven Canadian food bloggers to share one of their favourite dishes featuring U.S.-grown rice. What they came up with is a selection of delicious dishes you’ll want to add to your must-try list.
