Tomato & Pepper Cashew Brown Rice

img_20160907_184651Super easy side dish.. but it won’t taste like it. A healthy one too! I like to pair it with anything but it’s really good with fish. This can also be made ahead and warmed in the microwave for a timesaver. Enjoy! 🙂

You will need:

  • 1- cup Orange or Yellow grape tomatoes halved (you can use any color tomatoes you would like or any combination of)
  • 1/4 c EV Olive oil (or a little more if you like a wetter rice)
  • 2- bags boil in bag brown rice prepared by pkg directions and warm
  • 1-tsp Ginger (I prefer Simply Organic herbs and spices in my recipes)
  • 1-1/2-tsp Garlic powder
  • 1/2-tsp Coriander
  • 2-TBS Parsley (Fresh parsley is even better)
  • 1-1/2 tsp Onion powder
  • 1-tsp Fresh ground pepper
  • 1/4-1/2 cup chopped salt & pepper cashews (depending on how much crunch you like)
  • 2-tsp Lemon zest  (if you like more lemon flavor add a little lemon juice as well)

Combine all ingredients in a microwave safe dish except cashews until well blended

Cover and microwave on high for 1 minute and 30 seconds (Microwaves vary check after 1 minute)

Add cashews and gently stir. If needed sprinkle a little more olive oil and fresh parsley

Serve and Enjoy!!!
