“If you want to encourage your family to eat healthy brown rice - this is one way of tempting them! The colour of the rice isn’t as noticeable due to the tomatoes; and I always found that even the fussiest of children would try most things if they included a little cheese. Nutty brown rice and cheese are perfect partners (plus anything else you have to hand: peas, sweetcorn etc) and ingredients I often put together when my boys were growing. Having never thought about recording the quantities however, I was pleased to see a recipe with all the same basic ingredients I use on the netcooks website.”
