I love the Success brown rice that reheats in the microwave in 90 seconds. M/W the rice as directed, then toss the contents into your handy dandy non-stick pan and add:
1/2 cup diced baby carrot (around 1 snack packet)
1/2 cup frozen baby peas
1 cup frozen artichoke hearts (I'll cut them even smaller)
1/4 cup thinly sliced onion
scant bit of olive oil
Heat all the ingredients through, tossing gently. Season to taste.
The packaged rice is for 2 servings, so this makes up enough for a couple of lunches or a side dish for 2-3.
You can add other ingredients, like boiled shrimp, diced cooked chicken breast, whatever.
