Vegetable Rice

Do not be fooled by it's name!
Vegetable Rice? Bleah!

This moist rice is so irrisistable you forget about the peppers and carrots and celery inside it. And this is coming from an extremely ANTI-VEG fifteen year-old.

So it tastes great PLUS it's nutritious?
Now i want to eat it everyday.

Vegetable Rice
1 tbsp Oil
1 cup chopped onions
1/2 cup chopped carrots
1/2 cup chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped red peppers
14.5 oz chicken broth
1 1/2 cup white rice, uncooked
1 cup frozen peas (i took a stand here and excluded the peas. Absolutely hate 'em)
Salt and Pepper to taste

Heat oil in a skillet and saute onions, celery, carrots and peppers for about 7 minutes. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. Add broth and bring to a boil. Stir in rice and peas. Cover and let simmer for 5 min then remove from heat and let sit for 5 min so that liquid is absorbed.

Alternatively, if you posses a rice cooker (i do!), just pour the broth into the cooker along with the rice and peas after boiling and hit 'Cook'.

This is the life.
