Make any meal complete with this recipe for a basic rice side dish. Combining fluffy rice with diced potatoes, carrots, and peas, this side dish is flavored with onion and garlic. This is a simple rice dish that has a light flavor, making it the perfect side dish companion to a chicken or fish entree.
