Curried Rice

Curried rice

This is a delicious curried rice recipe. The curry flavor isn’t too strong.

The mix of brown rice, the spices and all of the vegetables makes this a very healthy recipe.

Of course, if you want to, you can add a cup or 2 of chopped cooked chicken or beef, but I like it as a vegetarian brown rice recipe myself.

If you are serving this curry rice as a main course, I would just add a salad, and possibly another simple vegetable, maybe steamed green beans. Altogether a wonderful vegetarian meal.

Brown rice has so much more nutrition that white, it really is a good idea to include it in your diet often.
