Harvest Rice

Always looking to spruce up a meal with something different?  This is another of my daughters’ creations, and it is good!  It makes a terrific side dish.  You can add some baked tofu, or grilled chicken breast (if you aren’t a fan of vegan) to turn this packed dish into a healthy lunch.  Either way it’s a flourishing treat that is tasty!  His recipe serves four.


2 Cups (uncooked) white rice

1 Small Onion Diced

1 Small Green Pepper Diced

2 Garlic Cloves Minced

2 TBS Olive Oil

2 Cups Fresh Corn

2 Cups Sweet Peas

1 Large Tomato Diced

1 Large Firm Avocado Diced

1 TBS Cilantro

Salt and Pepper to taste


Cook rice according to package directions making sure it is not overcooked.  Do not rinse rice. Meanwhile sauté onion, green pepper and garlic in olive oil until slightly translucent (about 2 minutes).  Add cooked rice to sautéed vegetables along with corn and peas.  Remove from heat adding tomato and avocado.  Season with cilantro, salt and pepper to taste.
