It’s summer and we find ourselves firing up the grill almost every weekend. Nothing says summer to me more than being outside with my family, smelling the delicious food we have on the grill and sipping on some ice-cold lemonade.
We love grilling all kinds of meats: burgers, hot dogs and chicken and we also love grilling vegetables! Grilled vegetables are my favorite. There’s something about the flavor and texture of grilled veggies that I love. And throw in some chimichurri sauce and some rice and I’m set!
One weekend, we made these Summer Spinach Artichoke Rice Bowls with Knorr Selects and my family could not get enough of them! They were incredible and ready in under 20 minutes!
Dinner Made Easy with NEW Knorr Selects!
We absolutely loved the Spinach & Artichoke Rice flavor of Knorr Selects. Each of the six flavors are made with no artificial flavors or preservatives, are gluten free, and are perfect as a side dish or as part of a one-pot meal. The Spinach & Artichoke Rice expertly blends rice, asiago and cheddar cheeses, and artichoke into a filling and flavorful rice dish that can be prepared however you like! A summer spinach artichoke rice bowl was the perfect, easy dinner.
We could have eaten this all on its own, but since we were grilling, we added the grilled meat and veggies, which helped round out our dinner even more. This is truly a delicious summer meal that everyone needs to try! Add in some grilled meat, or chicken or shrimp, or simply add grilled vegetables only. It’s up to you!
