Veggie white rice (microwaves)

Sometimes I love make  some things in microwaves, are fast and nice and have some recipes that are speciallly useful to some people only cook to themselves and dont have a lot of time.
You can use the microwaves and eat health and nice!
The original version is for 2 cups of rice.
But here is for these people that live alone or cook for two so the recipe for 1 cup of rice (2 o 3 servings)


1 cup of  white rice
200 grs frozen assorted vegetables
1,5 cup of hot water
1 tablespoon of butter
1 veggie Bouillon cube 
(low sodium if possible)
 garlic powder (a pinch)


Put the rice, butter and the bouillon cube in a microwaves container and put in high level by 2 minutes.
Get out of the microwave and stir and put again for two minutes more.(without lid)

Add the hot water and the veggies, salt and garlic,  stir and put with a lid at microwave by 18 minutes.
Set aside by 5 minutes inside the microwave.
When get out taste if is needed 1 minute more but normally the rice finish cook  when you set aside.
The matter of cook at microwaves is the time, all the food have a time like this.
The cook depends too about the amount you use.
When I make special food for parties nor others I always make this veggie rice. Is nice to side many plates.

Arroz con verduras al microondas

A veces me encanta hacer algunas comidas en el microondas o complementar la cocción, es rápido y muy saludable casi no se usa
aceites y los ratos de cocción son cortos.

La versión original de este arroz está hecha para dos tazas de arroz (5 o 6 porciones) pero yo la adapté (y probé) para una taza  por la sencilla razón de que hay muchas personas que cocinan para dos o para ellos mismos .
Esta receta la hago siempre para cuando me piden comidas para fiestas o cumpleaños, porque acompaña muy bien todo tipo de carnes o pescados.


1 taza de arroz blanco
200 grs. de vegetales congelados
1,5 taza de agua caliente
1 cucharada de mantequilla
1 cubo de caldo de verduras
(bajo en sodio)
1 pizca de ajo en polvo


En un recipiente para microondas poner el arroz, mantequilla y cubo de verduras, llevar a microondas en potencia alta por unos 2 minutos. Retirar, revolver con cuchara de palo y volver al microondas por otros dos minutos.(esta parte sin la tapa).
Luego agregarle el agua caliente, las verduras, la pizca de ajo en polvo y un poco de sal a gusto.
Llevar de nuevo a microondas por unos 18 minutos, con tapa, en potencia alta.
Cuando termine el tiempo dejar reposar dentro del microondas por unos 5 minutos.
Despues retirar y probar.
Si le falta se puede poner unos 2 minutos más pero nada más.(potencia media)
El arroz se termina de cocer dentro del microondas.
Lo importante de la coccion en microondas es los tiempos que deben ser bastante exactos, y en relación a la cantidad que se va a cocinar.

  44. Hi Gloria

    This looks so good and all your food looks so good. I come to visit and just keep going back and get lost looking and reading about such great food.

    Anyway I read at Betsy's how your dad is sick and I just want you to know that I will say a prayer for him and I so much wish that he gets well soon.

    Just spend as much time as you can with him because that helps more than anything, just being surrounded by loved ones.

    Best wishes and God bless.

    PS...and thank you for the visit and the recipe. You are awesome.
