Vegetable Rice Medley (TNT)

Post by pstarkoski on Sat Oct 17, 2009 1:13 am

I made this for a side dish for dinner this week and it was very good. ... a great way to use up veggies that you might have on hand. I had some zucchini that I didn't use for another recipe so I was able to use it up in this recipe before it went bad.

This is really great. It is so easy to make and has wonderful
flavor. Nice way to get in a variety of vegetables. It doesn't make a lot
so is great for me. Posted by Beth Layman to Simply-side-dishes.

Author Note: With tons of veggies and flavorful rice, this simple dish has
all your sides covered. Hearty and filling, this, paired with chicken or the
pork chops here, is the only side you'll need. Vary the basil depending on
how sweet you like your meals. Pat Habiger - Spearville,
