Brown rice is a complex carbohydrate so it digests more slowly than white and is therefore a better choice nutritionally.
3 cups cooked brown rice prepared in advance
2 T. olive oil 1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup green peas (frozen or fresh) 1 cup chopped mushrooms
1/4 teaspoon sea salt 1/8 teaspoon pepper
In a skillet over medium low heat, warm olive oil. Cook chopped onion and green peas and mushrooms in oil for 4 minutes. Add rice, salt and pepper; cook until hot and lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Add a splash of lemon for flavor. Serves 4.
If you want to have a meatless meal and still have more protein, add 1 can of rinsed cooked beans of your choice to the ingredients.
A complimentary side dish of steamed broccoli completes the meal.
