  • 2 cup zucchini

  • While rice is cooking, rinse cannellini beans, grate zucchini and slice roasted red peppers
  • Once rice is cooked, add yogurt. Stir together
  • Separate ingredients into 2 bowls. Enjoy right away or store in individual servings for lunches.


I love using jarred bouillon because it's concentrated and takes up less space, uses less packaging, and it seems to last longer at my house than broth.
