Emily Hockett, of Federal Way, Washington says, “I prefer this side dish to traditional recipes because it’s vegetarian and lower in fat. While you’re preparing the rest of your meal, it simmers on the stove, allowing the flavors to blend beautifully.”
- 1 cup uncooked brown rice
- 1 large onion, chopped
- 1 medium green pepper, chopped
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 1 can (14-1/2 ounces) diced tomatoes with mild green chilies, undrained
