My New Favorite Rice

Last week was throwing together a rice dish with veggies mixed in with it and it turned out so good I recreated it last night for dinner. It is totally yummy so I thought I would share my genius-ness with you! Here's what you need:

1 tsp. olive oil
1/2 c. chopped onion
1/2 c. chopped green bell pepper
1/2 c. chopped celery
1/2 c. grated zucchini
1 T. chopped almonds
1 chicken bouillon cube
1 c. minute brown rice
1 c. water (+ more as needed)
salt to taste

Saute the veggies in the olive oil for three to five minutes until they are soft and start to brown. Add the remaining ingredients and cook on a medium heat until the rice is soft, about 12-14 minutes. Add extra water if the rice appears to be dry before getting soft.

For those of you counting Weight Watchers points, 1/2 cup has 2 points. Enjoy!
