Quick and Healthy Side Dish

I made a really easy side dish today in my rice cooker. Healthy and very tasty too!

Diane's Wild Rice and Veggies

1 teaspoon olive oil
1 onion diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1 tablespoon cumin
1 teaspoon chili powder

1 cup wild rice

1 veggie or chicken bouillon cube
3 cups water
1 bag frozen fiesta veggie mix (beans of all types, carrots, broccoli)

In rice cooker add first 4 ingredients. Stir to mix. Add wild rice. Stir to coat the rice with the oil and flavors. Add bouillon cube and water. Set rice cooker to white or brown rice. (Depending on your preference: the white setting will stop when the wild rice is still nutty in texture and the brown setting will stop when the wild rice is a bit softer.)

About 2-5 minutes before the wild rice is done, add the bag of frozen fiesta veggie mix. Stir to mix. Close rice cooker and wait till it turns to keep warm. ENJOY!!
