Brown Rice with Vegetables

Brown Rice with VegetablesI was craving a simple and healthy side dish to serve with Chicken Piccata. I saw a recipe for this rice in a Cooking Light magazine and I thought it would be delicious. I used instant brown rice because it’s what I had on hand but regular brown rice or white rice would work great too. This recipe was quick and easy to make and tasted fantastic, it was a HUGE hit with my children. This rice dish paired nicely with chicken piccata and steamed broccoli.

Came across this when looking for a way to spice up a not prime cut of venison.
