Let's Go Healthy with hearty and satisfying Rico Corn Rice!

As we all know, rice is the most consumed food in the Philippines and our family is no different. We love rice! Rice is something we cannot live without! 

We also love Corn! Corn is one of the most popular and versatile vegetables, but also a good source of several nutrients. It’s a low-fat complex carbohydrate that deserves a regular place on any healthy table. This high-fiber, fat-fighting kernels of goodness are also hearty and satisfying. 
One Saturday, My family and I, went to an event at Claw Daddy in High Street BGC to try the new corn rice.  

The event’s theme was yellow and green to match the Rico Corn Rice colors and also prepared tables that reminds of a picnic.

SWEETENED RICO RICE WITH MANGO STRIPS 
This is so good! I am definitely making this at home. It consists of condensed and evaporated milk, Rico Corn Rice and Mangoes. Did I say that this one is good?   
They even had a demonstration on how to cook Rico Corn Rice. The instruction is as follow.
 Boil the appropriate amount of water depending on the amount of Rico Corn Rice you are going to cook.
 Simmer until cooked (when preferred softness and stickiness is achieved.). It usually takes somewhere between 10-15 minutes
Rico is also perfect for fried rice but tastes fine cooking it regularly. You can also use Rico in any rice recipe, like my favorite champorado.  
Here’s a cooking demonstration of Corned Pork Fried Corn Rice. 

This is so delicious and easy to make. Corn Oil, Rico Corn Rice and La Filipina Corned Pork.
 I am definitely cooking this at home!

    2. Wow, corn champorado, Ms. Rochelle! Would love to try that chocolaty corn treat! I love paella and I'm sure Rico Corn Rice paella would be heavenly.

      The SWEETENED RICO RICE WITH MANGO STRIPS makes me think of other kinds of "kakanin" we could make, like suman and biko. Ginataang mais would be redundant, but yummy! :D Ahhh, coconut milk, corn rice, and corn kernels! Mouth-watering! <3

  3. I am intrigued with the SWEETENED RICO RICE WITH MANGO STRIPS. It is the first time i heard about rice and mango that looks like mango float. Sometimes, I include mangoes as a side dish. Is it close to mango float, or is it like biko with mango or totally out of this world goodness? Hehehehe! Thinking of trying it kasi.

  4. When I read this post, I am thinking if this is better than rice. Although both are cereals and source of carbo, the corn could be more nutritious compared to rice as they are not processed much where the outer layer is segregated. :) My mom always told us to make our body and mind strong and healthy, that's why she always cook healthy meals for us everyday.. But still, she always look for other recipes to try.. I will tell her about this and Im sure that she will love this one. She really wants to experiment on new recipes and with this corn rice, it will be possible! It's healthy and yummy, so many vitamins included and will definitely hit our stomach happy! Plus the price is so affordable. It also ranges from the kilo of rice today, this is a very good alternative for rice. :) Thank you for sharing Ms. rochelle! BTW, jaja is so cutie, ang innocent ng face. Napakacute! <3

  8. try ko itong isuggest sa lolo at mga tito ko, sa father side ko kasi halos diabetic sila,. ang lakas pa naman nilang kumain ng rice at mahilig talagang kumain,. affordable sya kaya nga lang wala pang ganyan dito,.
    yung lola ko mahilig magluto ng mga kakanin, kaya pwede syang magtry nito kesa gumamit ng lacatan,.

  9. i've heard about corn soup, corn flour etc, but not this one- Corn Rice! Whew! This is something to dig in, love the color, the aroma...? and the taste? (that's for me to find out soon). As for now i can't judge it by merely looking at the pictures, though, it shows how interesting it is, i am just a bit surprized that corn rice is possible. I would really, really want to try this, i think i may put this in my grocery list so i can try it. Those recipes mentioned we're all mouth watering, and i guess there's a lot more to try to, with all the health benefits indicated above, what more can we ask for? Now i've got something new to prepare for my family. Thank you so much mam for this article, if it had'nt from this blog, i would'nt be able to know that there is such a Corn Rice! I'll tell my friends about it, more power to you mam, Rochelle!
