Have you ever used Nakano Seasoned Rice Vinegars? They are regular condiments in our home because they are full of flavors and replace fatty, high calorie condiments such as salad dressings, sour cream, butter and mayonaise. We are eating healthier this summer, how about you?
The Nakano Natural Rice Vinegar is my all purpose go-to rice vinegar because it has a mild vinegar flavor and doesn't over power any of the other seasonings or ingredients in my recipes. The Natural Rice Vinegar is my favorite because it has no added sugar or salt which is perfect for our healthier cooking. I can't always cook low sodium but I try to for most meals for my husband. This vinegar makes the perfect condiment for a low sodium diet. Besides the Sofrito Rice, this rice vinegar is great splashed on fresh cut watermelon and to season sushi rice.
Our second favorite rice vinegar is the Nakano Roasted Garlic Seasoned Rice Vinegar. This one does have sugar and salt added so we use it in recipes needing salt and garlic and make sure the other ingredients do not have too much extra salt or sugar. This is perfect for rice and potatoes. Depending on the salad or vegetables I will use this one, too!
Currently I love to use the Nakano Roasted Garlic Seasoned Rice Vinegar on roasted green onions and on baked potatoes. It is perfect for the potatoes because it drastically cuts down on added fats like butter or sour cream.
If you are not familiar with using Nakano Seasoned Rice Vinegars and you are looking to cut out fat and high calorie condiments I suggest you check out Mizkan.com/recipes for some new, tasty ideas. That is where I found the Sofrito Rice recipe. You can also get recipes by following the Nakano on Facebook and Twitter.
