Whole Grains For Dieting

I really like brown rice. I thought I'd try a diet friendly pilaf -- well, steamed rice and vegetables. All I did was mix rice, dried mushrooms, chicken broth, chopped carrots, chopped onion, garlic, thyme and a pinch of salt in the rice cooker and turned it on to cook. When the rice was finished I fluffed it with a fork, mixed in some frozen peas and parsley and let the rice steam until the peas were cooked (about 5 minutes). To give james a little extra flavor I sautéed some fresh mushrooms in a little bit of olive oil, butter and thyme and laid them on top of the rice.
Tomorrow I'll make something just for him.
