Veetee Blog UK: Something New!
24 May 2014
We've been busy.
So, terrible puns aside, we’re thrilled to be able to tell you we’ve listened to our fans and have come up with two exciting new flavours joining our Veetee microwaveable rice range – Egg Fried Rice and Wholegrain Brown Rice.
Create the ultimate Chinese feast at home
Quicker than a Chinese takeaway and with a fraction of the calories, our new egg fried rice is a great way to cheat your way to Oriental cuisine – just heat in 2 minutes and enjoy!
Its light, fluffy texture makes it great for enjoying on its own as a quick snack, as well as throwing into a veggie stir fry or next to your sweet and sour pork. Our chefs Andy and Salil have been busy conjuring up delicious new recipes for you to try with the new rice – we’ll be uploading them within the next few weeks, so do keep your eyes peeled on the site and our Facebook and Twitter pages.
Good to know
We’ve also been careful to only use free range British eggs, so you can be sure that the ingredients chosen are of the highest welfare and quality standard.
Wholegrain Brown Rice
We're very excited about this one, and think you will be too.
We all know we should be getting more wholegrain into our diets, but sometimes it’s difficult to know where to start. Our new Wholegrain Brown rice will make it easier to make that switch as simple and as easy as possible. Just by swapping chips or buttery mash to brown rice from time to time, you’ll be getting more wholegrain goodness into your diet – all within 2 minutes. What could be simpler than that?
Wholegrain brown rice is a low GI (glycaemic index) food which allows for a slow, natural release of stored energy. Including more wholegrain in your diet can help you to feel fuller for longer.
The possibilities are endless...
Our new variety uses Thai Jasmine Brown rice which has a slightly nutty, sticky texture, making it perfect with a variety of meals. You won’t be short of possibilities: try adding it to your bubbling soups, casseroles, stuffed into vegetables or tossed into Summery greek style salads… if you have any delicious recipes you’d like to share, feel free to tell us all about it!
Currently, you’ll find Veetee Wholegrain Brown Rice in selected Waitrose stores, showcasing our new-look black packaging. And if you’ve tried the products and would like to tell us what you thought, you can drop us a message – we’re always keen to listen!
