TO MAKE SOME OF THE BEST TASTING, HEALTHY, MULTI PURPOSE rice for use as a side dish or the basis of a fantastic vegetarian rice bowl with steamed veggies, tofu etc.

I made this for a healthy & delectable Honey Mustard Chicken over Pesto Whole Grain Rice & Steamed Veggies.

Polly’s Picks rates Buitoni Pesto with Basil all natural pesto sauce 10 out of 10 best.

Recipe for Pesto Whole Grain Rice

One cup Mahatma Whole Grain Long Grain Rice
2-1/2 cups water

Cover a medium sized sauce pan and heat on high til boiling. Reduce heat and simmer on low until water is absorbed into the grains of the rice and rice is tender and soooo delicious!

Add two or more tablespoons of Buitoni Pesto to the cooked rice and stir and serve.

Note: Trader Giotto’s Basil Pesto is awesome too (in the deli section) by the hummus.
