I almost put it into my cart until I noticed the price: $4.95 for about a cup and half of rice and who knows how much sodium and other add on ingredients.
It occurred to me I could probably make a vat of rice for the same price and that I was fully capable of coming up with a lemon ginger rice recipe of my own.
So that's what I did.
The result: An easy and flavourful side dish that I will make again and again!
