Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    1 cup long grain brown rice
    2 cups water
    1 tsp canola oil (or margarine)
    1 cup chopped onions
    3/4 cup grated carrots
    1 cup chopped red bell pepper
    Salt to taste
    1/4 tsp cayenne red pepper flakes
    1 tsp minced fresh ginger root
    3 tablespoons natural peanut butter (or make your own by blending up unsalted, roasted peanuts)

Directions

1. Place rice and water in a medium sauce pan. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce to low heat to simmer. Cook about 40 minutes without stirring, or until all of the water has been absorbed. This should yield about 2 1/4 cups of cooked rice.

2. While rice is cooking, heat oil in skillet or wok and sautee onions until golden brown. Stir in ginger, carrots, peppers, and salt to taste. Reduce heat to low, cover, and cook for 5 minutes. Add in cayenne pepper and peanut butter. Finally, mix in cooked rice and stir to combine!

If you want, add some chicken, beef or or shrimp in with the carrots and peppers.

Makes 6 servings of 3/4 cup each
