Typically rice is filled solely with carbohydrates, but this recipe loads brown rice with protein. Egg whites, broccoli, celery, mushrooms, onions and spinach mix with brown rice to create a tasty, filling and healthy dish. Top with salsa for an extra flavor kick. Servings: 2

Here's what you need...

1/2 cup chopped broccoli
1/2 cup chopped onion
1 cup sliced mushrooms
2 diced celery stalks
1 cup raw spinach
1/3 cup chicken broth
2 tablespoons lite soy sauce
1/4 cup long-grain brown rice
6 egg whites

Steam the broccoli until just tender. Coat a medium sized pan with cooking spray, add the steamed broccoli, chopped onion, sliced mushrooms, diced celery, and raw spinach. Cook on medium heat until the spinach has cooked.

Add the chicken broth, soy sauce and rice to the vegetable mixture and simmer until the liquid is gone.
Add the egg whites and stir until the eggs are completely cooked.
