Our Mediterranean vegetable rice contains courgette, red pepper, onion and grilled aubergines that are seasoned to perfection with garlic, basil and oregano.
All of our Birds Eye vegetable rice is steamed in our unique pyramid steamers and turned into frozen rice, allowing the flavours to infuse gently for an unbelievably tasty rice dish in minutes. You may just have found the perfect accompaniment to your weeknight dinners with this microwavable rice...
