Veggie rice casserole

Serves 4

  • 1 large clove garlic, peeled
  • Handful of fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1/2 cup fresh parsley leaves
  • 1/4 cup chopped onion
  • 2 1/2 cups vegetable broth
  • 1 cup short grain brown rice
  • 1 green bell pepper, chopped
  • 1 large carrot, shredded

Place the garlic, cilantro, onion, and 1/2 cup broth in a food processor and process until finely chopped. In a medium-size pot, bring the remaining broth to a boil and add the chopped mixture. Slowly add the rice, green pepper, and shredded carrot, reduce the heat, cover, and simmer for 35 to 45 minutes or until all the liquid has been absorbed. Garnish with parsley.
