Chef’s Tips:

  • If you are using regular brown rice instead of converted brown rice, then increase the water from 1 and 1/2 cups to 1 and 3/4 cups.
  • Dried Italian seasoning works well in this recipe, but feel free to customize the mix of herbs to suit your tastebuds.
  • You can find diced tomatoes with Italian herbs alongside other varieties of canned tomatoes in most supermarkets.
