Recipe Notes:



  • For my diet needs… brown rice is a healthier option as it has more fiber and can help stabilize blood sugar, but if you are following a low-fiber diet, you can opt for white rice.
  • For a lower carb version, substitute cooked brown rice with cooked cauliflower rice.
  • For a cleaner alternative to cooking spray, this Oil Sprayer is a great inexpensive kitchen gadget!
