Need a healthy snack or lunch that will keep you full? Belgian endive and brown rice make for a refreshing lunch. For more than one serving, just multiply. This recipe would be great for summer or fall picnics, too! Add finely chopped fruit such as oranges or apples.
Bring the brown rice and water to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low; cover the saucepan and simmer until the rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed, 45 to 50 minutes. Allow the rice to cool.
Place the rice, endive, and red onion in a large bowl. Drizzle the balsamic vinegar and olive oil on top, and season with salt and pepper. Mix thoroughly.
