I am a bit of a fan of ready-to-eat and re-heat rice, it really helps out in the kitchen on busy days, and Veetee is one of my favourite brands and I always have some of their “Dine In” ready cooked rice trays in my store cupboard. But now Veetee have two new kids on the block, Egg Fried Rice Trays and Wholegrain Rice Trays and I am loving these two new additions to their rice stable! The lovely people over at Veetee want all Lavender and Lovage readers to try their new rice trays, so they have very kindly offered a Family Size Rice Hamper as a prize, which comprises:
- 3 trays new Veetee Egg Fried Rice
- 3 trays new Veetee Wholegrain rice
- 2 rice bowls
- A wooden rice spoon
- A red silicone oven mitt
- Ingredients: fresh mixed peppers, fresh British chillies, Sweet Chilli sauce, Spanish chorizo and coconut milk
As well as this fabulous prize, they have also sent over THREE lovely new recipes for all my readers to try, which I have shared below!
