Garden Vegetable Rice

This quick and easy Garden Vegetable Rice is a favorite side dish for our family dinners. We can use any fresh or frozen vegetables we have on hand and tailor it to fit the flavors or style of our meal plan. In this photo, I’ve paired it with my baked Lemon chicken. No fake lemon flavored season salt here, friends! This Roasted Lemon Chicken (recipe coming soon) is roasted with fresh lemons which flavors the meat.

Ordinarily, we also add peas and fresh green beans from the garden. In the summer we add fresh zucchini and summer (yellow) squash. It’s such a versatile dish and an easy way to get an extra serving of vegetables into my daughter. We serve this with our main course and either a fresh garden salad or another saute of vegetables like asparagus or a roasted vegetables like cauliflower.

For an added brightness, I like to add a squeeze of fresh lemon on ours just before serving.

  1. I made this for my family last night with frozen veggies and they loved it! I made it along side chicken enchiladas and pinto beans so I squeezed a half of a lime over the rice before serving and it was delicious! Thanks for a great recipe that I can adapt with different veggies :)
