Green Bean Rice




In this delicious rice dish I have used the OXO vegetarian stock pot, which turned the plain boiled rice into a flavoursome and delectable dish that can be made in a jiffy. The stock posts are concentrated so don't be tempted to add extra spices and salt. The Oxo stock pots are packed with intense flavour and are perfect to add to your soups, stirfries, curries, rice dishes or pasta. They are versatile in use and available 3 different flavour combinations; Garden vegetable with parsley and bay, rich beef with onion and rosemary, succulent chicken with garlic and thyme.
