    Brown Rice Pilaf with Vegetables & Garlic

    1 tbsp. olive oil
    1 cup chopped onion
    1 1/2 cups brown rice
    8 large garlic cloves, pressed
    3 cups water
    1 tsp. salt
    1 cup fresh green beans, cut into 2-inch pieces
    1 cup yellow crookneck squash, cubed
    1 cup broccoli florets
    1 cup fresh corn kernels or frozen, thawed
    1/3 cup chopped red bell pepper
    1 tbsp. sesame seeds, toasted
    2 tsp. light soy sauce

    Heat oil heavy large skillet over low heat. Add onion;
    sauté until golden and tender, about 10 minutes.
    Add rice and garlic; sauté 1 minute. Add 3 cups water
    and salt; bring to boil. Reduce heat to low,
    cover tightly and cook until rice is tender and almost
    all liquid is absorbed, about 35 minutes; do not
    stir. Uncover skillet and place green beans, squash,
    broccoli, corn and carrot evenly over surface
    of rice. Cover and cook until vegetables are
    crisp-tender, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat.
    Stir in red bell pepper and sesame seeds. Mix in soy
    sauce. Toss to coat.
