Fajita Veggies and Rice


  • 1 cup brown basmati rice
  • 2 tbsp avocado oil
  • 4-5 bell peppers, mixed colors, sliced
  • 1 medium onion, sliced
  • 1 tsp oregano
  • 1-2 tsp salt


  • In a large pot, add rice and at least 4 cups water.
  • Bring rice to a boil, then turn heat to medium and allow it to simmer for about 30 - 40 min. When rice is just barely cooked, from the heat and drain any remaining water, or use a slotted spoon to scoop it out.
  • While rice is cooking, heat oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat.
  • Add all sliced peppers and onions to the pan at once and stir.  Toss in oregano and some salt.
  • Keep stirring frequently until peppers are just soft enough to be poked with a fork, but still firm/tender. Set them aside for a minute.
  • To serve, scoop the rice onto a plate or into a container and top with fajita veggies.
