Number of Servings: 1

Ingredients

    1/2 cup of instant brown rice
    1 cup or more of frozen veggies
    1/3 cup of water
    1 TBSP of Extra Virgin Olive Oil
    left over meat of any kind or shrimp or tofu or whatever
    spices ( sometimes I use a curry paste, or soy sauce and ginger/garlic, or just salt and pepper, or basil or whatever...whatever you like )

    Keep in a microwaveable bowl and microwave for 3 minutes at lunch time and let sit for 1 minute after.

    enjoy!


Tips

I usually make the night before or the morning before work and let the rice/sauce/spice sit and mix together for the morning ... heating will take longer if you make it and then cook it right away..
