Cookbook creator says: This recipe looks good. I have found that cooking both some brown and white rice and then mixing them half and half in a recipes suits my families tastes better for now. Eventually it would be nice to use all brown rice.

If you were a mashed potato lover, you might enjoy this alternative. We discovered it by cooking the cauliflower too long. Now, I wouldn't eat anything else.

From Fix-It and Forget-It Lightly cookbook. Veggies and tender and delicious! Don't skip the cabbage. It is sooo good.

This is a complete meal. No need to add anything!

This works best in a 5-6 quart slow cooker, but I use a 4-quart. Tight fit, but it is ok.

This is not my original recipe - although I have made it my own with the addition of parmesan & seasoning. It's floating around on various low carb boards, and is ABSOLUTELY delicious, fast, and healthy. Toasts well, makes great sandwiches. It's fluffy and really wholegrain tasting. You will never believe there is NO grain in it!

There is nothing to this dish...simply trim the stems and ends, toss with oil, and can also use asparagus as a delicious alternative
