Peanut Butter Brown Rice

Hello on the ninth day of the Vegan Month of Food! Today is a simple recipe that makes for a quick and easy meal.

Peanut Butter Brown Rice

--3/4 cup water
--1/2 cup Minute brown rice
--soy sauce
--broccoli (cut into small-medium pieces)
--peanut butter

mmm, broccoli :)

Bring the water to a boil, add the rice, stir, cover, and lower heat (medium-low). Keep an eye on it so it doesn't boil over; stir occasionally. After about five minutes, add some soy sauce, stir, and re-cover. When the majority of the liquid has been absorbed, drop the broccoli on top of the rice, and re-cover to allow the broccoli to steam for a couple minutes. Put heat all the way to low, add a nice big scoop of peanut butter, stir in evenly, and re-cover, turning off the heat. Once all the liquid is absorbed, stir once more for good measure and serve with baby carrots and lentil chips. (I like the Cracked Pepper Baked Lentil Chips by Mediterranean Snacks.)

Peace. :)


  1. Happy slumbering kitties and peanut butter in your dinner. This is my kinda post. :)

  2. What? Why have I never thought of this; bravo. Oh my gosh those feel sticking out of the blanket.

    1. Thanks, Abby Bean! I can't take full credit for the idea, though; one of my favorite restaurants in college made an awesome wrap with broccoli, carrots, red pepper, rice, and a soy-peanut sauce, so that was my inspiration!
      Hehe, she does have cute little feet. :)

  3. YUMMO! So delicious and so easy! My kind thing ;-)

  4. This sounds great, and so easy. I'll definitely be making it after MoFo!

  5. As a newbie to peanut butter I'm going to try this!
