Easy Mixed Vegetable Rice

If you come back really tired from work and want something super easy, nutritious and comforting--TRY THIS. I make this rice so often and its soooooooo easy :you'll love it. Pile in a bowl and eat away.You won't need anything else.


Rice 1 cup, wash well and soak for 15 minutes in water.
Frozen bag of mixed vegetables:corn, peas, carrot,lima beans etc 1 cup: thaw in water in a colander
1 tsp cumin seeds
chicken broth 2 cups (substitute vegetable broth if needed)
1 tblsp oil
1 stick cinnamon
2 cloves


Heat oil. Add cinnamon and cloves as oil heats. Add turmeric and cumin seeds to it.Then add vegetables and salt. Stir fry.Add rice. Mix. Add chicken broth. Cover. Bring to a boil. Lower heat and cook for exactly 15 minutes. Rice is ready!
Its important to soak the rice before cooking or else rice won't cook well.
