Spice Up Your Rice.

Vegetable Baked Rice

This is such a simple and yummy dish to make! This baked rice is a great way to highlight your favorite vegetables. Because it’s baked, it creates a warm and hearty meal. Feel free to change the recipe to add any vegetables you like!

Serves 6-8.

Ingredients:

  • 4 cups cooked rice, white or brown (I used white)
  • 2 medium zucchini, sliced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 1 cup reduced-fat sour cream
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1  cup shredded reduced-fat mozzarella
  • 1 tbsp fresh thyme
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • salt/pepper

Heat the olive oil in a pan on medium heat and add the zucchini and red pepper. Cook the vegetables for about 10 minutes, stirring often, until they are tender but still crisp. In a large bowl, add the cooked vegetables, rice, sour cream, 1/2 cup parmesan cheese, 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella, thyme and a dash of salt and pepper. Mix all the ingredients together and then pour the rice mixture into a greased baking dish. Top with the remaining 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese and the remaining 1/2 cup of shredded mozzarella and then bake in a 400 degree oven for 20 minutes until the cheese is melted and bubbly.
