Fiesta Brown Rice....

1/4 C Carrots, diced
1/4 C White onion, diced
1 tsp garlic, minced
1 C Zucchini, diced
1 lg red plum Tomato, diced
1 TBL Olive Oil
1/2 tsp Paprika 
1/4 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp dried Oregano
1 C Brown Rice
2 1/2 C water

In a large saucepan over medium heat Saute' carrots, onion , garlic zucchini and tomato in olive oil.
add paprika, cumin, and oregano.
stir in the brown rice and saute' another few minutes add the water, turn the heat to high and boil the water out, lower the heat to low simmer, cover and let cook an additional 15-20 minutes.

NOTE: I have used smoked paprika in this dish and it gives it a good smokey flavor I also substitute the olive oil for Vegetable broth again that is just our preference.
this makes a big serving and I have not tried freezing it so if anyone tries that let me know how it turns out.
