As A Source Of Vital Folic Acid, Rice Is Nice (NAPSA) - According to a report published in the American Journal of Public Health, Americans should consume more of the B vitamin folic acid for better health. Yet less than half of women of childbearing age and under 5 percent of those 65 and older consume the FDA-recommended 400 micrograms daily.
Recent research points to many health benefits from folic acid:
A half-cup serving of cooked rice contains approximately 46 mcg, or 11.5 percent of the recommended daily allowance, and partners well with such other folic acid-rich foods as spinach, asparagus and beans, as in this recipe from the USA Rice Federation.
Heat oil in large skillet over medium-high heat until hot. Add chicken, onion and garlic; cook and stir 7 to 10 minutes or until chicken is slightly brown and onion is tender. Add spinach and tomatoes.
Cook 3 to 4 minutes or until spinach is wilted and tomatoes are simmering.
Add rice, beans, vinegar, sherry, Italian seasoning and pepper. Cook and stir 3 to 4 minutes more until thoroughly heated. Sprinkle with Parmesan cheese.
