Brown Rice and Veggies

I promised my mother I'd get her this recipe - might as well pass it along to others, too.

Very tasty rice - brown rice is so much fuller than the white refined stuff.

1 cup brown rice
2 cups water
A handful of wild rice
1 tbsp butter or olive oil
1 large clove of garlic (pressed or minced)
Salt to taste
Pepper to taste
Chopped veggies (as desired).

Bring rice, water, and butter or olive oil to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat and cover. Add garlic, salt, and pepper. Mince vegetables (I use carrots and celery) and add. Cook rice down, approximately 45 minutes from simmer time.

Brown rice gives you lots of fiber, and the veggies are obviously good for you, too. If you find a good veggie combo, please let me know. Been meaning to throw some onion in there.

Zucchini and sweet potato. :) Add the sweet potato (small dice) about halfway through to steam done, and the zucchini right at the end.
