Simple Vegetable Rice


     Normally, I like to make complicated food – yes, that's me. But life sometimes is too complicated for complicated food. I think we all know that. SO, this easy vegetable rice dish almost takes care of itself. With the beloved combo of carrots and peas, and whole grain rice to fill up stomachs, this dish is simple and inexpensive enough to make for a crowd of hungry mouths. While not exactly party food, it can be a real life saver on weeknights and does not even need a gravy. It can be served with whatever you have on hand – patties from the freezer, bread from the cupboard, a salad from the fridge, or some seaweed chips from a bag. And there we had dinner again. . . .
     Now, since I just gave you some extra time this evening, I want you to do one thing – answer this question: What is your go-to, quick, easy dinner dish? Feel free to share recipes.

Vegetable Rice


Yields: 4 servings
 
2 carrots, diced 1/3 x 1/3 in.
1 onion, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced

1 Tbsp. lemon juice
2 Tbsp. nutritional yeast flakes, optional

2. Remove lid, allowing steam to escape for about 5 min. Add peas and fluff with fork.

Scripture of the Day

"But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength;
they shall mount up with wings as eagles;
they shall run, and not be weary;
and they shall walk, and not faint."
