Brown Rice and Carrots

Be sure to try the avocado variation—whole grains mixed with avocado's good-for-you fat and the antioxidants found in carrots provide a one-dish dinner full of nutrients. We do not recommend freezing or reheating avocado, so stir it in just before serving.

Yield: 1 1/2 cups or 3 (1/2-cup) servings (serving size: 1/2 cup)
