RECIPE: QUICK RICE MEDLEY
2 1/4 cups chicken broth, divided
1 cup uncooked rice
1/2 cup thinly sliced carrots
1/2 cup thinly sliced yellow squash
1/2 cup thinly sliced zucchini
1/4 cup dry white wine
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 tsp. ground pepper
Combine the rice and 1 3/4 cups of the broth in a 3-quart
saucepan. Bring to a boil and stir. Reduce heat; cover and
simmer 15 minutes or until the rice is tender and the liquid
is absorbed. Coat a large skillet with cooking spray and place
over medium high heat until hot. Saute the carrots, squash,
and zucchini 2 to 3 minutes or until tender crisp. Add the
wine and cook 2 minutes longer. Set aside and keep warm. Add
the remaining 1/2 cup of broth to the hot rice; stir over
medium-high heat until the broth is absorbed. Stir in the
cheese, pepper, and reserved vegetables. Serve immediately.
