Devo Olive Oil Review!

July is a very festive month, I know 4th of July has past but there's still that American pride in the air. Summer is in full swing and that means barbequing with hot dogs, hamburgers, a typical American tradition. Devo Olive Oil decided to take part in this tradition too but in a little more creative way.

Red, White and Blue themed balsamic vinegars! How cute (and delicious)!

Being a Devo Diva though it's our challenge every month to come up with recipes for these and this was kind of difficult. I mean typically I rock my balsamics in salads and I'm good but no I needed to be think outside the box. I think I can use the blueberry balsamic with some greek yogurt and blueberries and strawberries just for a yummy little snack but I'm out of greek yogurt so I came up with this instead.

Coconut Brown Rice with Veggie Stir Fry

Super simple and easy to make!

All you need is:
- Rice
- An Assortment of your favorite veggies
- White Coconut Balsamic

I'm lazy so I have the Minute Rice, so I followed instructions as to how to cook that but when it was done I poured 2 tablespoons of White Coconut Balsamic and just stirred it into the rice.

As for the veggies, I was also feeling lazy with those too instead of making a stir fry I found some frozen veggies that have been hibernating in my freezer for months so I microwaved them because I'm classy like that and instead of adding some water to them I added 2 more tablespoons of white coconut balsamic. Put the veggies on top of the rice and BAM! Deliciousness!

You couldn't taste much on the veggies but the rice was insane, I definitely think I might just straight up add balsamic and their unique flavors to rice now because it tasted so, so good. Coconut flavored rice is a popular thing too and now I see why because it's amazing. Definitely added a yummy punch to boring old brown rice.

Overall, I think this recipe was a success, it was easy to make but still a little bit creative and now I have learned a new thing to make rice taste actually good! Not that I hate rice, it just doesn't really taste like anything. And I am pretty excited to try the Red Apple and Blueberry ones as well though, when all else fails, I may add them to my salads.

Definitely check out Devo and their amazing variety of balsamics and olive oils, you won't be disappointed!
