Gluten Free Brown Jasmine Rice and Veggies

7 Oct

So, today, I cooked, a very nice gluten free dinner. I think you’ll like it–it’s easy to make and requires virtually NO prep time.


  1. 1 Cup Jasmine Brown Rice

    Yummy Dinner

    Looking Good

  2. 2 Small Onions — Chopped Fine
  3. 1 Large Tomato
  4. 1/4 Cup Peas
  5. 1/4 Cup of Cut Broccoli Heads
  6. 1 Carrot Thinly Cut
  7. 1-2 American Cheese or Swiss Cheese Slices
  8. 1/2 Table Spoon Salt
  9. 2 Pinches Black Pepper
  10. 2 Cups Water 🙂
  11. 1/2 Spoon of Butter
  12. 1 Small Lemon/Lime


So, let’s get you cookin’

First, take 1 cup of Jasmine Brown Rice and soak it in water for 20 minutes.

As the rice is being soaked, get a glass of wine (or scotch) and get to the prep station.

We’ll finely chop the two onions, thinly slice the carrot (I like to slice along the length of the carrot); get the 1/4 cup of precut broccoli heads, 1/2 cup of peas, chop the tomato (i keep the tomato pit); and add the salt and pepper.

Saute, on medium heat, ’till the mixture begins to sweat. Then add the butter and let all rest.

Now, let’s get back to the rice:

Drain the soaked rice a couple of times and then once you’re satisfied that the rice looks clean–add (2) two cups of water to the rice and bring it to a quick boil by heating on high heat.

Once, the rice has been brought to a roaring boil–add a 1/2 a tablespoon of salt, 1 tablespoon of olive oil, add the tomato pit, and a thinly cut lemon/lime slice to the mix. Bring the heat now DOWN TO SIMMER & cover the with a lid.

The rice now need patience, and you need to down the drink.

Check on them occasionally but do not keep lifting the lid and letting all that good steam escape. After about 30 minutes, stir the rice, check for consistency–they should be chewy and still a little grainy to taste. If they are, cover the pan again and let cook for a few more minutes.

It’s now time to add your sauteed mixture and the two slices of cheese (Yes you can use shredded cheddar) but the slices were handy and quicker.

Bring it all to a nice mix–take out the lemon slice and squeeze the other half in the mixture. Let it all sit for 2-5 minutes.

Serve with Red wine and enjoy this awesome gluten free meal.

Ready to be Eaten.

    where’s the meat!? j/k I know I can add it or serve on the side! I am O blood type, we require more protein than just cheese. Or, at least, I let myself think that, but I am definitely not a vegetarian. Thank you for sharing this, it sounds delicious, especially the wine part! LOL

      Hi Wendy, lol, I liked the wine part, too.
      Sake could be a good substitute as well.
