Description

Chickpeas and legumes make delicious rice - that’s why we used them to create Banza Rice! We took a household favorite and made it even better, turning this pantry staple into a powered up, protein-packed, mealtime hero. Banza rice has almost 4x the protein, 3x the fiber, and nearly 30% fewer net carbs than brown rice - making it the base you can feel good about serving and sharing. It’s also gluten-free and vegan, and packs 11G of protein in each serving, making it easy to cook a balanced meal in minutes.

Banza Rice has been celebrated by various media outlets since launching - from NBC News and Business Insider to Food & Wine, Cooking Light, and Well + Good.

We use 4 non-GMO ingredients to make Banza Rice: Chickpeas, Potato Starch, Sea Salt, & Xanthan Gum. Each ingredient contributes to the delicious flavor and texture of our rice. It's a tasty, nutritious addition to your favorite meals and a twist on a time-honored staple.

Banza Rice is prepared a little differently (and faster) than regular rice - simply cook in salted water for approx. 5 mins at a rolling boil, strain & rinse. Use it in your favorite recipes and meals, such as grain bowls, risotto, fried rice, stir fry, burritos, paella, and more. It will re-heat well for leftovers so you can easily use it to meal prep for the week ahead. We can’t
wait to see what you whip up!

It tastes ok, but it’s nothing like rice. It’s more like an orzo pasta.

Omg. This rice is so good. I’ve had Banza pasta but this surpasses everything. I never write reviews for things and here I am, lol. Going to use this as rice substitute for EVERYTHING going forward.

This is more like an orzo / pasta. It is very filling, so a little goes a long way. I would not use this in an Chinese/Japanese/Thai kind of dish.

Hi, Liz -- While we’re bummed to hear you didn’t love your most recent experience with Banza Chickpea Rice, we always welcome and encourage this honest feedback. That said, this is not how our rice are supposed to whip up during mealtime, and we’d love to take a deeper dive. When you get a moment, could you send a quick note to info@eatbanza.com so we can gather some additional details and make things right?

So far all of the Banza products I’ve tried have been good. This new rice product is no different. It’s delicious. I’m always looking for healthier food options and this hits the mark. It also cooks really fast which really helps with this busy life.

I’m trying Banza rice for the first time, and it has so much more flavor than just plain regular rice. I ordered mine from the website, and loved all the recipes available.

A great substitute for rice or orzo. Cooks a little faster than pasta, so watch out for that. As a vegetarian (mostly) it’s a great way to get more protein into my diet

Can you please provide serving size/nutritional facts based on a cooked rice measurement? Since cooking instructions are based on cooking the bag not 1/4 cup of dry rice.

Really good, but not comparable to rice

I really like the taste, but I would say that this is more so an alternative for orzo than rice.

Orzo, not "rice"

I have found recipes for orzo better suited than pretending this is rice. The flavor is pasta and tastes fine like all Banza products!

I have been using the pasta for some time now, absolutely the best gluten-free brand. So I had no doubts when trying the rice. My first pack to try was their ginger scallion flavor. ARE YOU FREAKING KIDDING ME!!!!! Hands down the best flavor ever! The texture is like sticky rice. Went perfectly with my stir fry. Well done.

It’s pasta shaped like rice. It’s not bad but definitely not a rice replacement.
