Review: Panera Warm Grain Bowl – Are the Panera Warm Grain Bowls good?
What are the ingredients in the Panera Baja Warm Grain Bowl?
So I was looking for brown rice and red and white quinoa. Rather than buy all three, I found some in the freezer aisle! I got a bag of frozen and it heated up in less than 5 minutes in the microwave. Or Minute Rice sells a brown rice and quinoa in little cups as well that heat up in a minute.
