Brussel Sprouts and Cherry Tomatoes over Rice by Gnewvegan

Brussel Sprouts and Cherry Tomatoes over Rice

Serves 4

This is a recipe I made in my rice cooker. If you do not have a rice cooker that is ok. Simply cook the rice per package directions in a pot and steam the vegetables separately with the same seasonings per the recipe.

1 lb brussel sprouts, cut off stems, remove loose outer leaf and cut each in half
3 cups of brown rice
1 pint of cherry tomatoes, rinsed and halved
3 large or 4 regular size garlic cloves minced
2 teaspoons extra virgin olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Dash of adobo with pepper seasoning
Vegan parmesan to sprinkle

1- Mix the brussel sprouts and the tomatoes in a bowl.
2- Preheat a 7 or 8 inch skillet for one minute and then heat oil one minute on a low flame.
3- Brown garlic about one minute or until a light brown.
4- Pour garlic over vegetable mixture and mix .
5- Add the rice to the rice cooker and add appropriate amount of water per package directions.
6- Put steamer from rice cooker in place and add to it the vegetable mixture, cover, set to cook.
7- When the button pops up to warm, carefully open cover because of the steam. Add Adobo and salt and pepper to the vegetables. Fluff the rice with a fork, put on plate, top with vegetables, and sprinkle with parmesan cheese if desired.

Thank you for coming to my blog. Please come back soon.
