TNDAH: Another Wednesday Edition

So it seems I can't quite get my act together with the "Tuesday Night Dinner at Home" entries, so this week brings another Wednesday version.

Tonight's dinner centered around using up the abundance of brown rice I have in the cupboard. Even though I know it's good for you, I still find brown rice to be quite bland. I thought I'd add a few things to spice it up tonight.

First, I sauteed fresh minced garlic with chopped onion and chopped green pepper (fresh from my mom and dad's garden).

Then, I cooked the rice as normal.
And added it to the sauteed vegetables. I topped it off with a dash of fresh ground pepper and sea salt.
I paired the rice with a grilled chicken breast (seasoned with pepper and Jane's Krazy Mixed-Up Salt), and a sliced tomato (again from my parents' garden and the most delicious I've had all season).
Altogether, pretty tasty. I still haven't reached a point where I'll gush about brown rice, but I'm getting there. At the very least, it's a perfect substitute for white rice when cooked/baked as part of a larger dish.

  1. It looks good. I actually like the texture of brown rice, but it is better with something "bad for you" on it. Butter, sauce, gravy...all those things that ruin the fact that you are eating the healthy rice.
