Brown Rice Veggie Mix Recipe
As much as I really enjoy eating meat, especially beef and chicken, sometimes I like to make a meatless meal. It doesn't hurt to skip eating meat a few times a week, in fact it can be a nice break for me. And let's face it, meat is expensive.
I do make and eat quite a lot of brown rice, often making it ahead and keeping it for when I want to eat it during the week. Brown rice is healthier that white rice, and I love it's nutty, earthy flavor.
This recipe is super easy to make, and you can vary the veggies if you don't have these on hand. The bell pepper gives it a touch of color, and red bell peppers are so good for you.
