Directions:

  1. Combine wild rice, brown rice and 3 cups chicken broth in medium saucepan; bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until liquid is absorbed, 40 to 45 minutes.
  2. Spray nonstick skillet with cooking spray; add 1 to 2 tablespoons chicken broth to skillet and heat over medium-high heat.
  3. Add onions and garlic; cook, stirring frequently, until onions are softened.
  4. Add mushrooms and bell pepper; cook, stirring frequently, until vegetables are tender. Pour soy sauce over vegetables and mix well.
  5. Add vegetable mixture to rice and mix well.
  6. Spoon rice mixture into microwave-safe bowl; cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  7. Allow rice to stand at room temperature 15 to 20 minutes before reheating. If mixture seems a bit dry, add a little chicken broth. Microwave on High 4 to 5 minutes, until heated through.
Tips:
  • Red bell peppers are an excellent source of vitamin C and beta-carotene, as well as beta-cryptoxanthin, another antioxidant carotenoid.
