Ingredients: - White or brown rice
- Your favourite Veggies (that can be steamed)
Put a cup of rice in a pot with two cups of water (if you want to cook more rice just remember that the ratio is 1:2) and cook for 10 minuets (keep the lid of the pot on). Prepare your selected veggies- you can always use frozen/precut veggies if you need to, just make sure they can be steamed (which is most veggies). After your rice has been cooking for 5 minutes put your chopped veggies into the pot and put the lid back on.
Note: Some veggies take longer to steam, you may want to search for a ‘cooking cheat sheet’ if you are unsure. Also remember that the smaller you chop your veggies the quicker they will take to cook, so if you have are cooking veggies that take a long time with veggies that take a short time you may want to make the long cooking veggies small and short ones in big pieces.
If you are using brown rice remember that it cooks for 20 minutes, so you will need to put your veggies in after 15 minutes of it cooking. You could alternatively use quiona (which cooks for 12 minutes and has the same ratio).
