Bowl of Goodness

I am trying to increase the amount of veggies I eat. I am not very good about getting all of the servings I should. I don't really know why, I like the taste of all sorts of vegetables. I am also trying to incorporate more whole grains in my diet, so..... I made this little dish~
1 cup of Brown Rice ( I found the organic kind at Wal-Mart). I cook mine in half water and half organic chicken stock.
Saute': Red Pepper, Onion, Mushroom, Carrots, Celery and Garlic in a small amount of Olive Oil (You can use any kind of vegetables you like, these are just some of my favorites) Season with salt, pepper, oregano and cumin.
When veggies are almost finished, add one can of drained and rinsed black beans and heat through. Add cooked rice and stir well.
Enjoy a bowl of goodness knowing that it not only tastes good, but is very good for you.

YUMM this sounds good. I make variations of this dish all the time. It's the best because you can add any veggies that you like. For asian stir-fry I add an egg, snow peas and water chestnuts. YUMMY!

Love the "Veggie Pot", as I call it, too. Especially in summer when there is such a bounty to enjoy.

Kids still aren't big fans of brown rice and truthfully, neither am I, so I've been experimenting with Amaranth and other grains that I can grow locally.

Loads of fun for experimental cookers!

Good for you that you are working on your healthy eating! Meat is just so easy to cook it get's to take up so much room in the diet after a while.

I'm the same. I like veggies but seem to have a hard time incorporating them into our diet. We eat a lot of pasta and I sometimes add veggies to it but not always.

Looks so good. Hubby and I eat a lot of veggies and try to limit our meats to 3 days a week.
Have a good weekend...
