    Hey

    i've been eating more rice recently, i finding it very filling!

    i had uncle bens mushroom rice today for 2 syns

    and last night i had crosse and blackwell 5 minute rice (one was chinese, one was golden veg) and they were 0.5syns and 1.5syns

    i just wondered if there were any that were syn free? or at least lower in syns? (0.5syns is fab!)

    any ideas?

    No problem - I think some of the flavours might have been discontinued now though, I don't think the egg fried rice one is still about. The Thai one is nice!

    I would recommend making your own then you know exactly what has gone into it, can make it syn free and you don't get all the additives and preservatives. Plus it doesn't take any longer than using a packet flavoured rice.

    Aah! You need to get yourself a microwave rice cooker from Lakeland. Perfect rice every time - easy peasy! I wouldn't cook my rice any other way.

    Check out BritMum's recipe for savoury rice, but you can really use any leftover veggies you happen to have. Or for a very quick lunch I use leftover rice with chopped peppers and sweetcorn (or even easier use a can of mexican sweetcorn), some kidney beans and some syn free salad dressing.
