1 cup uncooked brown rice
2 medium size green bell peppers
1 green and 1 sweet pepper ( Red / Orange) chopped fairly small
1 Jalapeno chilli or the amount to suit your taste
1 medium onion finely chopped
Cilantro (I like a lot of it)
1/4 tsp of jeera
Salt and pepper to taste
1 Tbsp. olive or canola oil
3 Tbsps shredded sharp cheddar cheese
Cook and set aside the brown rice with 1/2 tsp of salt according to the
instructions on the package.
Heat the oil in a heavy bottomed pan and toss in the jeera.
Once it changes color, add the onions and chopped jalapeno chillies and
saute for about 3 to 5 mins.
Add the chopped bell peppers and continue to saute. The veggies should
not be too soft.
The flavor is best when the peppers are still a bit crisp.
Season with salt and pepper and add the chopped cilantro.
Toss this mixture with the cooked rice and shredded cheese while still
warm and serve immediately.
Serves 2 as a main course.
