Zucchini Rice

Can you tell it's zucchini season??? Woo Hoo... one of my favorite veggies!  This is a quick easy way to sneak some veggies into this awesome side dish. 

2 Cups Rice
3 Tablespoons Cooking Oil
1 Zucchini
1/4 Onion
3 Cloves of Garlic
1 Handful of Cilantro
4 Tablespoons Chicken Bouillon Powder
2 Teaspoons Cumin
4 Cups of Water

Put the Zucchini, onion, garlic and cilantro in food processor.

In a large skillet start to lightly toast the rice with the oil.

Pulse the veggies until ground up... 

Add to the rice and oil and cook for about 2-3 minutes... 

This is the powder I use... 

Add the water, bouillon, and cumin... Bring to boil and 
Cover until most of the water is absorbed.

I know its hard to tell... but turn off the heat when most of the water is absorbed... 

This is what the beautiful rice looks like.
