Thai Rice with Vegetables

Thai Rice with Vegetables


2 people made this

I love rice, but it has so many calories that I often don't use it when I want to make a low calorie meal. This dish solves that problem. The combination of rice and vegetables makes a very generous serving, and it is so flavoursome that it stands on it's own as a vegetarian meal. There are so many options for serving THAI RICE WITH VEGETABLES. Use as a side dish with any of the other delicious recipes on Calories Counted Curries. Or as I said before, you could serve it as a vegetarian meal, perhaps adding chick peas to provide protein. For non-vegetarians add cooked chicken to make it a complete meal.
