Here's a great recipe for y'all- my mom made it up a while ago, with chicken in it, but I switched that out for zucchini and adapted the recipe a bit. It's delicious, and SUPER good for you. And, of course, completely vegetarian (vegan, if you don't add butter to the rice)!

1c brown rice
2 tbsp butter (optional)
1 whole zucchini, chopped
2 cloves garlic, chopped
1 med yellow onion, chopped finely
3/4 tsp cumin
3/4 tsp chile powder
black pepper to taste
salsa as needed
1 can black beans, drained
1 can tomatoes, drained
1 can green chiles, drained

Put rice, 2 1/4 cups water, and butter in a pot. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and cover. Cook 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, in a large pan, cook garlic and onion in a small amount of water on high heat. Add cumin and chile powder (and pepper if you wish). Add zucchini, small amount of salsa, and 1/2 cup water. Cover and allow to cook for 5-7 minutes. Uncover and stir in beans, tomatoes, and chiles. Cook til hot through and zucchini is easily pierced with a fork. Serve over rice.
Serves 4-6, depending on hunger. Cheesy

I tried this for supper tonight.  I used a 5 grain-type rice instead of brown rice.  Overall I found the dish a bit bland, but it was still good and the fact that it's all healthy ingredients means it's worth it to eat even if it's not super delicious.  It was also quite filling and has left me with enough leftovers for a couple of meals. 

I think I might add some cheese on top of it when I reheat the leftovers or maybe use them in a wrap or something.  It seems like it's a pretty versatile recipe that could be used for several things and adapted to suit tastes.

I'll probably try again another time.  Perhaps next time I will put more spices in it to give it more flavour.

Thanks for the recipe!

When I cook rice I add olive oil to it.
