Question about Miracle Rice

I bought some cream of potatoe and bacon Progresso Light Soup. 2 servings in the can and only 100 calories per serving. I was wondering if adding some miracle rice to it would make for a filling DD meal. My question is: do I boil the rice first before adding to my soup? My experience with the noodles was not pleasant, as they just tasted rubbery to me. Is the rice less rubbery?

I haven't tried the rice, but it's the same ingredients as the noodles. I'd rinse very well then dry fry them, then add to your soup. I can't remember who, but someone here does pea soup with miracle rice pretty regularly.

I like the rice much better than the noodles. They're like little pebbles. They don't seem as rubbery as the noodles.

It cannot be emphasized enough: rinse, rinse, rinse. They have an odor otherwise.

You can just add them to the soup and heat.

I like the rice, too. I use it in Amy's split pea soup. I heat it with the soup.

I felt like the rice had the same exact texture as the noodles. But, that said, it really does help to dry fry before you throw it in your soup. Rinse very very well, soak up as much extra moisture as you can (I used paper towels) and then put it in a skillet (with nothing else) and heat it up/stir it around with a spatula until more of the moisture is gone.

Thanks, I'm going to give it a try. I'll start out slow and mix with cauliflower rice. I'll thin the broth with almond milk if needed. I'll tart by adding to a fourth cup of soup and see how it tastes. That way if I don't like it I won't have ruined a whole can of soup. Thanks for your help.

I do this with TJ's split pea soup. I don't bother drying the rice--just rinse and drain and add to the soup. Makes a great DD dinner!

Miracle Noodle and Rice

I learned this trick by being turned off from the smell of the water that
the product is shipped in and the rubbery texture. The rinsing is the most important.
Then I put the product in a colander with bowl beneath. I squeeze an
lemon over all and fluff it up. Then rinse once again. That neutralizes
the product. Then I dump it into a Pyrex measure cup, add 1 tsp. fat
and 1 tsp. either beef or chicken bouillion and let it cook for 2 minutes on
high. Drain. It is ready for use. I think it is softer now.

I owe my Winter JUDDD success to Miracle Noodles! They are great heated up in soup - after rinsing well of course!
I never tried the rice but I always cut the noodles up small, so they slipped straight down and I didn't have to chew them. I'm sure the rice would be even better.

I'll add the "I just rinse" them, too.
I've never really noticed a weird smell once they're rinsed.

That's two posts for pea soup, so I'll have to give that a try too. Thanks everyone for the good suggestions.

The Smart One (WW) Santa Fe Chicken is 140 calories mixed with a bag of well rinsed miracle rice was my DD staple for my first 3-4 months on JUDDD. It was 2 full servings for me. That and celery! I may have it again when the winter arrives.
