Core Rice and Vegies Side

This rice is a no fuss side dish.

Serve with beef curry or casserole such as Beef and Potato Curry rather than plain (boring) rice and vegies

Serves: 6 large servings, equivalent of 1/3 cup rice and 1 cup vegies each, or 8 smaller serves.

Difficulty: Easy


  • 2 cup brown rice
  • 4.5 cups water
  • 4 tsp beef stock powder (or 4 cubes)
  • 1-2 tsp of dried onion flakes
  • 6 cups frozen vegies (I used 2 cup each beans, corn and mixed vegies)


Put rice and water in a non stick saucepan and bring to boil.
Reduce heat and simmer for 25mins with lid on.
The rice should have taken in all or almost all of the water. If necessary add a little more water to there is about a 1mm layer of water on the base of the pan to steam the vegetables.
Add frozen vegies, stock powder and onion flakes, turn heat to medium and put lid on.
Cook for about 6 minutes, stirring once or twice.

Not on Core? The total Points for this recipe is 16.5 pts (using free vegetables) or 3 pts each serving 6.

Note: you can drop the points by serve and bulk it out by adding extra vegetables.
