I wanted to create something quick, healthy and easy for my family as a side dish on those hot summer nights. It doesn't take long to cook, so it doesn't heat up my kitchen too much! also great at BBQs and delicious served with fish. This rice dish is also very colorful- great for eating with the eyes.
Soy sauce is a great flavor boost if you find the rice toO bland. Rice stores well in the fridge for 1-2 days. If I am expecting more people, I will cook two packets of rice so that there is enough to go around.
