Vegetarian Recipe: Brown Rice, Veggie and Egg Bowl

This has become my latest favorite "quick" meal.  It does take a bit of time to chop the vegetables, but if you plan to make it several  times during a week, you can cut the veggies all at once and make extra rice to save for the later meals.  That way it's just a quick cook and you have a yummy, hearty meal.  Another great thing is that you can adapt it and use whatever veggies you happen to have on hand.

1 cup brown rice
2 eggs
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 red bell pepper, sliced
1/2 green bell pepper, sliced
1/2 small onion, sliced
12 baby carrots, sliced lengthwise into fours
2 cups fresh spinach, chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp ground ginger (or use fresh if you have it)
salt and pepper to taste

Prepare rice according to package directions.   Heat olive oil over medium high in a skillet.  Add peppers, onion and carrots.  Sautee several minutes until starting to brown.  (While cooking, place rice in bowls.)  Add garlic, ginger, salt and pepper.  Cook 30 seconds.  Add spinach and stir until wilted.  Place veggies on top of rice in bowls.  In same skillet, crack two eggs.  Fry each as desired (I like to crack the yokes and cook them firm, but make them as you like.)  Place a cooked egg on top of each bowl.  Serve with soy sauce.
