Forget Rice-A-Roni: Try this Easy Ginger Rice Recipe as a Dinner Side

When you are a mom, you are always looking for quick dinner ideas that are not only quick but something your kids will eat. However, when you are single, you barely want to cook. Therefore,  boiling water and throwing something in a pot sounds like a good idea. 

When you browse the aisles of an American grocery store,  it's quite easy to see that brands are catering to this growing trend by putting more boxed meals on the market.  Rice-A-Roni is a great example. Who remembers that commercial jingle?  The company has evolved into selling products that you can make in the microwave with single servings in three minutes through the years. 

If you like Rice-A-Roni, but want less sodium and want to eat healthier with little effort, then give this side dish a try.  It's so easy and delicious.  You can serve this with chicken, seafood, or pork.
