I’ve been compiling recipes and tips for going down the gluten-free path in our home as we troubleshoot some health issues. 

Here is some delicious confetti rice I made to go with some gf Swedish meatballs (recipe to come). It’s great for using up leftover rice. Adding some black beans would make it a great main dish, while substituting the corn out and using different spices would make it a nice Italian side. Bottom line: it’s a winner and will go in our rotation!

Easy Confetti Rice

  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 cup diced onion
  • 3 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 cup diced red pepper
  • 1/2 – 1 cup diced green pepper
  • 4 cups cooked brown rice
  • 1 – 2 cups chicken broth
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh cilantro or italian parsley, optional

Sautee onions in olive oil until soft. Add garlic and peppers and cook on medium for a few minutes. Add the brown rice and 1 cup of the chicken broth. If your rice is a bit underdone, more broth is helpful. Season with salt and pepper to taste and cook on medium, turning frequently, until most all the liquid has cooked off. Garnish with parsley or cilantro if desired.
