The girls and Trevor absolute love rice. Me? Well, I like it but I certainly don’t love it like they do. That said, I’ve been making it a lot more often because they’re constantly asking for it. So, we tend to have a lot leftover. While I’ve made a lot of different rice dishes (like my leftover fried rice, rice casserole, curry and rice, etc…), sometimes, a rice bowl is all I need.
And this is a really easy one. The hardest part is chopping all the veggies and to be honest, that’s not very hard or time consuming in this dish. So, once everything was prepped, I threw it all in the pan and had dinner in under 20 minutes for the fam-fam.
This is a keeper for fast weeknight meals. Questions? Lemme know!
