Here is an easy vegan main dish for a simple, nutritious and flavorful dinner that uses ingredients you likely already have on hand. I didn't follow a recipe (following one is rare for me) but if you use your intuition you'll do fine and end up with a simple and clean dinner.
vegetable or chicken broth
chopped veggies like onions, garlic, carrots, peas, celery, mushrooms. Try broccoli, spinach or chard, zucchini, etc.
butter or a healthy cooking oil like olive oil or avocado oil
Here's the gist:
Cook brown rice in vegetable or chicken broth with a bit of avocado oil or butter. I used my rice cooker.
Sauté chopped veggies (I did: onions, garlic, carrots, celery, mushrooms, peas, parsley) in a bit of oil or butter.
Combine the rice and veggies
Salt and pepper to taste
It really is that easy. See! You didn't need a recipe for that!

I love movement and habits that promote health and lifetime wellness. I also like stretchy pants, being outside and good-for-you food! Follow me on Instagram @DawnBrownCoaching for more frequent updates.
