This reminded me a lot of jambalaya but with a lot more veggies in it. I left out the broccoli because DH doesn't like it, and increased the amounts of all the other vegetables.

Ingredients Nutrition

  3. Heat remaining olive oil and add rice, stir-fry about a minute.
  4. Mix tomato paste and sundried tomato paste and add to rice, stirring constantly.
  5. Mix in cooked meat and vegetables.
  6. You can substitute any vegetables and meat in this recipe.
  7. I have used shrimp with wonderful results, but you need to add the vegetables first and the shrimp last.
