This isn’t really a recipe, its just a quick meal and a good way to use up vegetables in the fridge…
1 box Wild Rice, cooked in a rice cooker.
1 lb Ground Beef, browned
Salt & Pepper
Chopped Vegetables: zucchini, yellow squash, carrots, onions, garlic, spinach, etc.
Start the rice in the rice cooker. Then, cut up whatever vegetables you have on hand. Cut them pretty small and all about the same size. Sauté the vegetables until softened and then take them out of the pan and set aside. (Some take longer than others, so for example start onions and carrots before adding in the zucchini).
Brown the ground beef, seasoning with salt and pepper. When the rice is done add the vegetables and rice back into the pan with the ground beef and stir everything together. If adding spinach, chop it up and then stir it in at the very end. The heat will wilt it.
The wild rice has a lot of flavor, so I don’t usually add much else, but if you want more flavor, add any spices that sound good. The main thing is to get the salt right for the ground beef.
