Miranda’s Easy Increase Your Stats Side Dish
I love an easy side dish. For many years I purchased the box rice sides equipped with the flavor packet of unpronounceable ingredients. They’re easy to prepare and a pretty good upgrade from ramen noodles when you’re first learning your way around the kitchen. But we can do better! My yummy rice will take you from up to 25 ingredients down to six!

This rice recipe is so delish and super simple. It tastes fresh, clean and requires only a few ingredients you probably have on hand right now! The best part is the versatility. Just substitute the citrus and herb and you have a whole new flavor to love! You can also substitute olive oil for the butter if butter’s not your thang!
Here ya go…
1 can low sodium chicken broth
Instant brown rice (fill empty broth can with rice to top)
1/2 teaspoon dried parsley (or fresh if desired increased to 1 tsp)
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
Combine all ingredients in a microwave safe dish. Cover tightly with plastic wrap. *My dish has a lid so I cover with both.
Microwave on high for 8 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes to complete the cooking process. Carefully remove the plastic wrap. It will be steamy! Fluff and enjoy!
This rice goes great with salmon, tilapia or chicken.
Feeling a little bit Latin? Substitute the lemon and parsley with lime and cilantro. Yum! The lime version goes great with any Mexican or Cuban foods.
Level up and enjoy!
