Vegan Brown Rice And Apple Goodness

I made brown rice with grated carrot, diced apple & caramelised sweet potato for dinner the other night. It is a delicious vegan recipe with red onion and pecans. I topped it off with a maple & dijon mustard dressing.

There’s only me and my son at home and he barely ate any of it! More for me! The recipe might need doubling for a bigger family. I ate 2 bowls and finished the last bit off later in the evening.
