Nakano Seasoned Rice Vinegar Sofrito Rice #Recipe

Have you ever tried Rice Vinegar? I had never even heard of Rice Vinegar until I was asked to try Nakano Seasoned Rice Vinegar. As you can see above, there are a bunch of different flavors. I got to try natural and roasted garlic. I used it to make Sofrito Rice (recipe below) and grilled asparagus and beets. I splashed the roasted garlic rice vinegar on the vegetables and grilled them along with some chicken and made the Sofrito rice with the natural rice vinegar. You know what’s nice about Nakano Rice Vinegars? They are all zero calories and zero fat and 0-20 calories, depending on the flavor. It added a really nice flavor to the asparagus. The Sofrito Rice was delicious and I can’t wait to make it again!
