This is a newer addition to the regular dinner rotation. I make it easy by making it in the rice steamer–yes, the whole thing. If you don’t have a rice steamer, cook your rice separately, saute the vegetables, then stir in the rice.
1 1/2 cups rice
1 1/2 cups water, vegetable broth, tomato juice, chicken broth
1 cup chopped vegetables (another one of those use what you have in your fridge: carrots, onion, celery, a few spinach leaves, zucchini, peas
1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese
Put a bit of olive oil in the bottom of the rice steamer and add your carrots/onion/celery/zucchini. Save spinach and/or peas for later. Click the white rice button and let run until veggies are sauteed. Then add rice and liquid. Choose the rice cooking option you need. Toss the spinach and peas on top and let cook. When done serve with a sprinkle of Parmesan cheese and pepper.
