I created this dish for people who don't like to eat vegetables. The challenge was making sure the dish was flavorful but healthy. Lightly season to taste is key but adding a little lemon juice with fresh herbs like cilantro packed in a lot of flavor.
1 tablespoon of olive oil
¼ cup of white wine preferably
½ teaspoon of tomato paste
¼ teaspoon of fresh lemon juice
¼ cup of cilantro chopped finely

Brown rice has less carbs and more fiber than white rice. Blanching keeps vegetables crisp and nutrient dense.
