Expert Tips

For a spicier dish, add chopped jalapeño chile, seeded if desired, with the vegetables.

To toast almonds, sprinkle in ungreased heavy skillet. Cook over medium heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until nuts begin to brown, then stirring constantly until nuts are light brown.

To pack in more nutrition and whole grains, use instant brown rice instead of white rice. Cook according to package directions.
