Miracle Rice Recipes
Does anyone have any great recipes for Miracle Rice? I will take anything you got! Specifically, I am looking for a cheesy rice/comfort food kind of recipe -- something that would make a nice side dish with protein. I've been having terrible cravings for starches -- french fries, noodles, rice, bread -- and I am looking to nip that in the bud!

Also, if anyone has any great casserole recipes using Miracle Rice, I would be most grateful. Thank you SO MUCH!

Google "Miracle Rice Recipes" and you'll find a lot.

I never heard of Miracle Rice before, but watched the video on "Low Carb Chicken Fried Rice Recipe With Miracle Rice!" and it looks so yummy :yummy:I may get some myself. :)

I checked out the Reviews on Amazon on Miracle Rice and picked up some good info.

Cheesy "rice" bake. Made with miracle rice. OMG so good.
Out of the oven.
Up Close
With my meal of a frozen cooked chicken breast patty/lc ketchup/jalapeno slices:

2 bags rinsed Miracle Rice
1/2 cup Ragu Double Cheese sauce
1 large egg
6tbsp grated parmesan cheese
3tbsp "I can't believe it's not butter" (yeah yeah I know, i haven't used this stuff in 3 years, but I'm trying to reduce calories for a bit)
2tsp yellow mustard
2tsp franks hot sauce
1tsp garlic powder
1tsp salt
1tsp pepper

Put the rinsed rice in a dry hot pan and let the liquid cook out. Add garlic powder to rice and mix well. While the rice is drying out, in a bowl mix cheese sauce, mustard, hot sauce, egg, salt & pepper, and half the parmesan cheese. I used a small loaf pan to bake it in. Add half the rice in the baking dish, then half the cheese, then the rest of the rice and rest of the cheese. Mix everything very well. Add the "i can't believe it's not butter" in dabs across the top, and cover with the remaining parmesan cheese. Bake @350* for about 20 minutes.

Makes 4 pretty good size servings@
136 calories/11.76g fat/2.74g carbs/.2g fiber/2.55g net carbs

Or if you are hungry and want to use it as a main dish, you could get 2 huge servings@
272 calories/23.52g fat/5.48g carbs/.4g fiber/5.1g net carbs

This was an experiment, so I think I could leave out the egg and "I can't believe it's not butter" and it would come out the same. Reducing the calories to 84 per 4 servings and the carbs to 2.65g.

MsWoods, have a question for you please.

I'm not LC, but would like to lower my calorie input a bit. I read one Review on Amazon where the Poster said that although Miracle Rice did fill one up more, she was hungry in two hours. She said that she thought her body knew she was fooling it.

Have you found this? That's it's filling, but hungry soon?

Thanks for any input.

One bag of Miracle Rice, rinsed
Velvetta cheese, cubed (to taste)

In a small saucepan heat the Miracle Rice until some water come out and drain and put back in pan. Add cubed Velvetta to taste, stirring on low heat until cheese is melted.

Serve hot.

Simple , but good.

MsWoods 01-21-2014 11:25 PM

Yum. I need to get some and make the mac and cheese.

I know this is an old thread but I just wanted to post my positive experience w Miracle Rice. I made an Asian dish. I don't do a lot of measuring but here's the gist of it.

1. I rinsed and microwaved 2 bags of Miracle rice. I rinsed a second time, let it drain and then squirted in some soy sauce to let them soak it up while they were still warm.

While they were sitting and soaking I prepped all my veggies.

2. I cut up green onions, garlic, ginger, carrots, peas, etc. I drained and pat dry about 1 lb of sliced pork I had marinated over night.

3. I used a paper towel to dry off my rice.

4. I sauteed the pork and removed from pan.

5. I cooked my veggies w garlic and ginger for a bit then added the meat and rice back to the pan.

6. I drizzled some soy sauce and oyster sauce over the mixture and let cook.

It wasn't a super high heat fast stir fry but I did turn the heat up at the very end to let the sauce concentrate and evaporate out a bit.

Finally I added about 1/16th tsp of zanthum gum but I don't think it was really necessary.

It turned out so delicious!!! :jumpjoy:

I'm already planning my next recipe in my head. I think I'll try something non Asian this time.....

Thanks, Ruby. I need to order some of this next time!!

I have been debating buying the oracle rice. I think I want it now after looking at
the cheesy rice!!:)

MsWoods 06-23-2014 09:43 AM

I've been wanting some cheesy rice pretty bad. I think I'm going to have to get me some double cheese sauce and make some.
