Turkey Sausage, Sweet Potato & Rice Protein Bowl Recipe

This post is sponsored by Minute Rice, but all opinions are my own. Thanks for helping me to support the brands I love.

On the menu this week: A Turkey Sausage, Sweet Potato and Minute Rice Protein Bowl Recipe!

Looking for an easy meal to cook for the entire family? Well, this is it! It is also great any time of the day, seriously! I used Minute® Spanish Rice Cups with my recipe, but you can use any of their amazing flavors to pair with it depending on what you and your family like. These Minute® Spanish Rice Cups are great for Mediterranean or Mexican-style dishes. The rice has seasonings like tomato, garlic and onion. This quick and easy recipe is also yummy and budget friendly too!

I love to cook with rice because it’s good, it has an extra 6 grams of protein per cup (before adding in all my other protein packed ingredients too), and the kids love it! It’s also a great way to break away from the kids thinking that every dish must include bread or potatoes. I love giving them rice instead! Minute® Rice is made with only quality rice, simply cooked then dried. Nothing is added to their original rice, but convenience. Now, Minute® Rice comes in several different flavors like exotic grain blends, organics and aromatics. Minute® Rice Cups are available in a variety of flavors, such as Chicken & Herb, Cilantro & Lime, Jalapeño and more.

Minute® Rice Cups are BPA-free and prep time is so quick and easy. Simply remove the film from the top of the cup and pop one cup in the microwave for 60 seconds. Two cups take 90 seconds in the microwave. You can enjoy them by themselves, add in your favorite ingredients for a quick meal or even try their different flavored cups. They are so good no matter how you eat them! I love how quick and easy they are, and the kids love the taste!

  • Prepare Spanish Minute Rice Cups in the microwave per the packaging instructions.
