Brown rice and vegetables

A great summer recipe, and the perfect accompaniment for bbq food.

Steam brown rice and over/above the rice steam some mixed vegetables – frozen can be used or fresh if you have them.  I used a fixture of carrots, peas and sweetcorn but you can use whatever takes your fancy. Add drained beans – any kind will do and sliced celery for a bit of crunch.

If you want to make a dressing, mix olive oil, balsamic, salt, pepper, whole grain mustard, garlic, parsley and lemon juice – taste to make sure this suits your preference and then drizzle over when ready to serve.
