Recipe: Rice Medley

This quick and easy side dish is a nice alternative to the boxed or packets of rice. What I like about it is that I can control the sodium and other added ingredients.


I found mixing the carrots and peas with the rice very bland…. so I added other ingredients… you can do the same… add what your family likes… it’s a great way to get them to eat their veggies.

If you don’t have or don’t want to use a bouillon cube, substitute chicken broth for the water when making the rice.

I hope you try this and experiment with your own additions.. and let me know what you did!
