Mean Green Rice Bowl
Don’t let the name fool you, this Shamrock Green Rice may sound like it’s especially for St. Patrick’s Day, but you can serve this delicious dish any time of year. Bring some color to your table and prepare this as a simple weeknight side to accompany an oven-baked chicken breast or filet of fish.
The vibrant green color of this dish comes from fresh ingredients like green bell peppers, onion, celery and broccoli all sautéed to perfection in butter. Combined with soup, white rice and cheese, this dish is a creamy bowl of comforting goodness. Served hot, this dish is perfect for the winter months when you need something to warm you up. Or, serve this chilled as a delicious summer rice salad. It’s delicious either way!
This dish is versatile enough to use for a rice bowl or as a filling for burritos or tacos for your next Taco Tuesday party. Looking for more ideas? Take some inspiration from these Mean Green Stuffed Portobellos and use it to stuff mushrooms or some peppers.
This rice is naturally vegetarian, but feel free to add in shredded chicken, turkey or your protein of choice to add protein and turn it into a well-balanced main dish. If you’re avoiding cheese, mash up an avocado and use that instead of the cheese.
Add whole grains to this dish by swapping in Success® Brown Rice for white rice.
