  • While rice cooks, heat a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil; swirl to coat. Add onion, celery, and carrot; sauté 5 minutes or until tender. Remove from heat; stir in parsley and remaining ingredients. Add vegetable mixture to cooked rice; fluff with a fork. Serve immediately.

  • Tip: Chop all your vegetables and herbs in the morning so when you come home from work, the recipe is a cinch to complete.
