My mother-in-law brought me a bag of red rice over Christmas, and I have been intrigued ever since. Sure, I read about red rice in my Indian cookbook, but had not really considered cooking it before, until tonight! It turns out red rice is delicious!!

I cooked it just like I usually cook brown rice: 2 cups of water to 1 cup of rice, with 1 teaspoon of salt. Put it all in a pan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Then cover, lower heat to low and let cook for about 40 minutes. Delicious!

The veggies are just as simple: Heat a cast iron skillet with a bit of canola oil (just enough to coat the skillet) over medium heat. Add 1 garlic clove sliced while the pan and oil are still cold. Allowing the garlic and oil to heat up together will give more flavor to the oil. When the garlic starts to turn brown, add the broccoli and cauliflower (or whatever veggies you like) and let cook for about 5-10 minutes. Violá!
