The holidays are upon us in full force which means sometimes we need to make something special quickly when friends are family are visiting. We joined up with Minute® Rice and came up with this delicious twist on a Thai foods favorite.

With Minute® Rice we cut the prep and cooking time down to make our Cranberry Pomegranate Coconut Rice, a quick and easy impressive treat to serve at the last minute. The mixture of the tangy cranberries and pomegranate with the creaminess of the coconut milk and the hearty texture of the Minute® Jasmine Rice added with a touch of ginger brings the holidays to your taste buds.

The beautiful contrast of the white and red make a lovely holiday presentation on the table. This could easily be a dessert or I would eat it as a delicious breakfast.  It's perfectly tart, sweet and creamy. You can also serve it cold or warm.
