I know I’ve posted about this recipe before, but it’s soooo tasty and soooo easy! It takes about two minutes to prep, press the brown rice button on the rice cooker, and an hour later you have a savory, flavorful meal in one pot. We’ve been on a mushroom kick this week already, so I left them out of the recipe this time and it was just as satisfying. We loved the addition of a fresh side salad to have a contrast, and I think it’s the perfect addition to this rich dish. I told Josh that it’s the fastest and easiest thing I’ve made in weeks, so if you need a break this week and still want to stay on track this is the dish to make!
