Lemon Rice with Vegetables
2 cups Brown Rice (I used a sweet brown rice)
2 teaspoons Turmeric
1/2 Onion, diced small
4 Carrots, peeled and diced
1 Red Pepper, diced
1 lb. Fresh Green Beans, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 Large Lemon, juice and zest
1/2 teaspoon Salt
1/4 teaspoon Pepper
Cook rice according to directions except add turmeric. (I cook my brown rice over the stove top for about 45 minutes). Meanwhile, heat a medium saucepan with 1/2 cup water. Add the vegetables and cook until tender. Adding more water if needed.
Once vegetables are cooked and rice is done. Combine them together and stir in lemon juice and zest. Heat through and add salt and pepper. Stir and serve.
