Our Cooking With Kids series has been such a hit, both on the blog in in our home. My daughter and I have created quality time together as we cook our way through the alphabet. We’ve love trying new foods and sharing them with you and your families! Today we’re sharing a go-to and easy recipe for any weeknight dinner. This Easy Vegetable Rice dish is perfect as a side dish for families when you want to get some extra veggies into the kids. The colorful rice dish can be a meal in itself, if you add your favorite meat. We made this dish together when a cousin was over for some playtime. The two cousins had a blast in the kitchen and we got to eat the vegetable rice for dinner, making it a real treat to serve up food that we cooked together.

Start with 3-4 cups of cooked rice. We used leftover rice, which we always seem to have when we eat any kind of dish with rice. Save that leftover rice! It’s totally yummy the next day.
to slice and dice peppers. I’ve found that slicing the peppers into strips and then having the kids chop them into chunks works well with the preschool age.
