Parmesan Brown Rice

Recipe by Manami

Nice to serve with lemon roast chicken and maybe a mixed-vegetable medley. Perfect meal for the diabetic!

This sounds really yummy! I'm going to try it with extra virgin olive oil instead of the butter. I like the taste and it would be monosaturated instead of saturated. Butter is yummy, too, but I LOVE olive oil on veggie-rice dishes.
