Savory Skillet Rice

If you're looking for a quick comforting meal then this is the recipe for you. Let's face it, we all have days when we just don't feel like going all out for dinner. Thats why I love things that make cooking dinner easier like the using the frozen precooked Jasmine rice and Mushroom Medley from Trader Joe's. I was shocked when I tried the mushrooms because I thought there was no way I would like frozen precooked mushrooms but Trader Joe's has a magic touch because they were delicious.They're well seasoned with salt, garlic and extra virgin olive oil. Best of all they were just a few dollars.
