How to Make Zucchini Veggie Melange
- If using rice, cook ahead of time, remove from heat, and leave covered, so as not to dry out rice. If using instant rice, you could do it, while prepping vegetables.
- Heat oil in medium skillet. Add onion and garlic, and sauté for 5 mins. Add remaining ingredients including liquid, if using; cover, and simmer for 15 minutes. Add cooked rice; add more liquid, if needed, if you are using a liquid. Cook 5 minutes more, or until vegetables are tender.
- Makes 4 servings. Each serving about 80 calories, without rice and broth or juice.
