If you’re trying to think of a healthy side dish to counter all the decadence of the holidays, rice can be the perfect go-to-dish. For one, rice is a good meal extender. It has built in health benefits. And if you pick a brown rice casserole, then you’re in for a delightfully nutty, moist and flavorful dish.
Brown rice benefits are immense. It is rich in antioxidants. Its nutrients are known to lower cholesterol. And since it is rich in fiber and selenium, brown rice can help maintain one’s weight . Overall, there is no doubt brown rice is one of the world’s healthiest foods.
Although it takes slightly longer to cook than white rice, this Brown Rice with Sausages & Vegetables will definitely get the approval of anyone who tries it. I had no difficulty putting this together. I had two different types of sausages : Italian and Spanish chorizos, a bowl of assorted vegetables and cups of brown rice and broth. Once I finished cooking, it was sheer brown rice perfection. It was an all around good quality, healthy rice dish and instantly became a family hit.
