Brown Rice With Roasted Vegetables

This is a warm salad of oven-roasted veggies and Indian flavored brown rice. I cooked the brown rice with cumin seeds, garlic, chilly flakes which made it taste like pilaf and I used all the possible vegetable found in my refrigerator. The colorful veggies were made more appealing to the palate by the addition of thyme and rosemary. They were roasted to perfection and served over the steamy brown rice. They are so filling and packed with nutrition.

For those who are conscious about the extra flesh around your waist and for those who wants to eat whole grains and for those who is opting for a healthy living, here is the tasty solution. I have had a disliking for Brown rice, 5 grain hot cereal mix, Quinoa and Oats but once you learn the knack to cook it tastier, you can never get enough of them. Will share the delicious recipes of those in the future posts.
