Summer Veggie Rice Bowl

From Our Kitchen To Yours
I'm excited to be linking up today with Charlotte from Laws in the Lowcountry to share a recipe! Charlotte is a good friend who moved to Beaufort not too long ago. It was so fun going over to her house for dinner while I was home. You can check out details of that dinner on her blog: pasta recipe, table setting, and dessert. I would highly recommend both the pasta and dessert! Now on to my recipe...

I have a confession to make: I've been sitting on this recipe for months. My mom cleaned out her recipe binder a while ago and sent me a whole bunch of recipes she thought I would enjoy.
I love getting fun things in the mail!
One of the recipes was Cooking Light's Summer Veggie Rice Bowl. I made a huge thing of it and was set for the week. It is a complete meal but you can easily add grilled chicken, fish, or shrimp for more protein.
