Baked Mexican Brown Rice

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by LonghornMama

Mexican rice that's vegan, lowfat, and made with healthier brown rice. Not too spicy so this would make a nice side to a variety of meals, not just Tex-Mex. Would be nice served with black beans. From

Tasty, nutritious, and easy. My grocery sells canned diced tomatoes with jalepeno and chile peppers already added, so I used those. I subbed olive oil for the canola. I used my large cast-iron fry pan and then covered it tightly with foil once I put it in the oven. I served this with chicken and black bean enchiladas I made with whole wheat tortillas. The rice was a great addition to a filling, wholesome meal!
