Not only does it look like rice, but it can also taste like rice! Directions: One of the biggest advantages of Palmini is that it’s already cooked! All you need to do is rinse the product thoroughly. Once Palmini is rinsed, in a sauce pan add your choice of sauce or recipe along with the Palmini and heat. If you want to neutralize the flavor and smell of Palmini, rinse well and let it sit in milk for 45 minutes. Rinse again and enjoy! Make sure to eat Palmini with a sauce, since Palmini might not taste like rice if you eat it straight out of the can.
