How colorful! This sounds like a great side dish or even a main dish with a little soup on the side :)

I'll pass on the tomatoes (unless they're roasted too)

I'm glad this recipe uses brown rice! I don't usually eat rice unless they are brown or multi-grain. Saving this for lunch.

love this recipe! i hope trying it with canned, rinsed lentils could work as well. i often times cook enough brown rice to freeze for just these types of quick dishes. ilove preparing delicious meals that doesn't require too much kitchen time! :)
