Meatless Monday Recipe

We have meatless Monday at our house.  Since my juice fast, though, I have gone from eating meat 5 to 6 days a week to NO MEAT at all.  Now if you would have told me before my juice fast that I would do away with meat, I would have called you crazy.  I have always loved a good steak and baked potato.  I feel sooooo good, however, from my juice fast, that I have no plans of messing that up.  I am still juicing and I am eating very healthy, too.  Tonight my husband made the best meal and I need to share it with you because I added NO MEAT to my portion and it was really delicious!
He made brown rice first.

2 TBSP olive oil
1 medium onion finely chopped
salt and pepper to taste
1 cup brown rice
1 cup white wine
3 1/2 cup vegetable broth
1/4 cup parmesan

Heat the oil in a large skillet. Add onion, salt and pepper and cook until tender (6-8 minutes)
Add rice and cook for about a minute.  Add wine and simmer until rice is tender and broth is absorbed (18 - 20 minutes)

Heat snow peas, frozen peas, 2 scallions (thinly sliced) and some button mushrooms.  Cook until heated through (about 3 minutes) and add this to the rice!

YUMMO!!!  Devine, seriously.  (and healthy)  My husband and boys added rotisserie chicken precooked at the grocery store to theirs.
