Lemon Beet Rice
This rice preparation is extremely easy to make. It is also very healthy. It may be used as a main dish or as a side dish.
1. 1 cup uncooked rice
Cook the rice according to package instructions. When it is half cooked, add the lemon juice (item #2) to the rice and salt to taste. When the rice is cooked, set aside. Do not overcook.
Sauté the onion, ginger and garlic (item #4) in 2 dessert spoon butter. (You may replace the butter for olive oil if you prefer). When the onion starts to get transparent, add bell pepper and beet root pieces (item #3) and cook for another minute or till the contents are dry. Add this to the rice and mix well. You may decorate the rice with a sprig of parsley and cilantro prior to serving if you wish. Serve hot with a side dish or alone.
