Notes

  1. For a quick preparation, make the brown rice in advance.
  2. Using a food processor to shred the carrot, zucchini, and yellow squash will make for faster prep.
  3. Don't overcook the veggies, you still want them to have some texture.
  4. Store in an air tight container for up to 4 days.
