3 cups organic low-sodium vegetable broth or filtered water, divided
1/4 cup yellow onion, chopped
1 Tbsp. organic, non-GMO miso paste or shoyu
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1 cup brown rice, cooked
1 cup filtered water
1/2 cup organic carrots, shredded
1 organic tomato, sliced
1 sprig organic dill, chopped
In a medium bowl, mix the zucchini slices with 1 cup of the vegetable broth. Marinate for 10 minutes.
In medium pan, sauté the onion, miso paste or shoyu, garlic, and 3 tablespoons of the vegetable broth or filtered water for 5 minutes. Add the brown rice and stir. Add the remaining 2 cups of vegetable broth and 1 cup of filtered water and bring to a boil. Reduce to medium-low heat and cook, covered, for 35 minutes. Add the carrots to the rice and continue cooking for an additional 10 minutes.
Place the sliced zucchini on a baking sheet. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes.
Add a bit of the rice mixture to each zucchini slice and top with tomato and dill. Serve.
