Lately I’ve started to get a little adventurous in the kitchen, trying new ingredients like quinoa and bison! And even more recently, I’ve fallen in love with simple meals that don’t have a ton of ingredients (or carbs). 

Enter: the Bison Burger with Brown Rice & Mushrooms. 

Delicious new recipe for Bison Burger with Brown Rice & Mushrooms | Crazy Running Girl

Admittedly, it’s not the most beautiful dish you will ever see but it is quite delicious — I feel like the flavors balance quite nicely and it is a good, hearty meal that is easy to make. 

What makes it even easier?

Riceland Boil in a Bag! I finally tried these for the first time this week and they will be a new dinner staple. From a price perspective, they are just as affordable as other rice options and I love how easy they are to make. As an extra bonus, all of the rice that they sell comes from farmer members in Arkansas and Missouri. 

Perfecting the rice for Bison Burger with Brown Rice & Mushrooms | Crazy Running Girl

For two servings, you just pop a bag in the water and after 10 minutes of boiling, you have perfectly cooked rice! So easy. There are two servings per bag, which makes it easy when you are just cooking for two — or, I like to put the leftovers in the fridge and use them on top of a salad the next day (so good). 

If you’re looking for a protein-rich dinner that’s easy to make, check out my recipe for the Bison Burger with Brown Rice & Mushrooms!
