Veggie Rice Bowl

February 26, 2010 by Joan Nova in 1-2-3 Quick + Easy Vegetable Meals, Product Recommendations, Rice/Risotto, Vegetables | 10 Comments

Here’s another 1-2-3 quick + easy vegetable meal…born of necessity. I had 2 days of leftover veggies in the refrigerator that I wanted to use and I wanted a healthy lunch.

It’s no big deal. It’s not the über recipe. And you’ve probably done meals like this yourself many times. However, it was tasty, colorful and it made me feel like I was taking good care of myself…and that’s a good thing. :)

Plus I wanted to show you a new product. I picked up this rice blend (basmati, red rice and lentils) one day and then forgot about it until I was scrounging around the pantry looking for some inspiration to make lunch.

I put about 1/4 cup of the mix in a pot to start cooking up and then I started pulling out the leftovers.

  • spinach that had been sauteed with a little olive oil, garlic, sundried tomatoes
  • 1/2 tomato that I minced and dressed with FOODalogue house seasoning
  • a few sliced brussel sprouts which has been cooked with garlic, lemon and toasted pignoli nuts

1-2-3. Mix and eat.

Finishing Touch: Drizzle of Sesame oil with chile pepper flakes.

NOTE: Some recipes found on FOODalogue are offered without ingredient quantities. They're meant as a guide to food pairings and techniques to be experimented with … in your own kitchen … to your own spice and taste levels … to your preferred portion sizes … and to however many people you’re cooking for. A perfect meal has multiple levels of flavor and textures, bright colors and tastes, and healthy(ish) choices. It's all about enjoyment. Enjoy the process, the presentation and the just rewards...eating!

    What a beautiful and healthy vegetarian dish! My husband would love this.

  3. I love dishes that make you feel like you’re taking care of yourself. I’ve seen that lentil blend in the store but haven’t picked it up yet. It intrigues me now.

    Thanks for sharing the rice blend Joan. That’s one I’d be interesting in trying. It’s obvious that you take care of yourself, as Billy said back in the day, “you look marvelous”! Have a great weekend.
