Simmered in the slow cooker, this simple and colorful side dish pairs well with many entrées. Make it your way with the tasty variation below.
cups sliced fresh mushrooms (4 oz)
cup chopped carrot
cup chopped red bell pepper
cup uncooked extra long-grain brown rice
cup chopped fresh broccoli
Spray 3- to 4-quart slow cooker with cooking spray. In slow cooker, mix all ingredients except broccoli.
Cover; cook on High heat setting 2 hours 30 minutes to 3 hours 30 minutes.
Stir in broccoli. Cover; cook 15 to 20 minutes longer or until broccoli is crisp-tender.
Substitute orange or yellow bell pepper for the red bell pepper if you have one on hand. All of these colors of bell peppers are sweeter than green bell peppers and can be used interchangeably.
Portabella Confetti Brown Rice: If you like the earthy flavor and meaty texture of baby portabella mushrooms, use them in place of the regular white mushrooms.
