It also features unique spices, a splash of cooking wine and parmesan cheese. It’s complex enough that adults will appreciate the taste yet tasty enough that the children will love it, too! With bright colors, bold flavors and less than 400 calories per serving, this is sure to be your family’s new favorite.

Time: 60 minutes
Serves: 6
Serving size: 1/6 of recipe



  1. Dissolve 1.5 tablespoons vegetable broth powder in 3 cups of water.
  2. Combine one cup of vegetable stock and one can of tomatoes in a bowl. Reserve the rest of the stock for later in the recipe.
  3. In a Dutch oven or heavy-bottomed pot over medium heat, sauté shallots in 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. Add garlic powder and marjoram and stir. Cook for one minute. Add rice and cook for two more minutes, stirring often.
  4. Add cooking wine and sun-dried tomatoes and stir until all liquid has been absorbed. Add half of the tomato stock liquid and cook, stirring frequently until the liquid has been absorbed. Add second half of the tomato stock liquid and cook. Stir until liquid has been absorbed. Add remaining 2 cups of stock and 1/2 can tomatoes, 1/4 cup at a time, stirring and letting the liquid absorb before adding more, until all the stock has been used. Test the rice to make sure it's al dente.
  5. In a separate pan, sauté zucchini with 1 tablespoon olive oil for a few minutes, until edges are slightly browned.  Add sautéed zucchini, 1/2 of the remaining can of tomatoes, parsley, parmesan and pepper to the large pot and heat for five minutes.
  6. Remove from heat and cover pot with the lid. Let mixture sit covered for five minutes. Remove cover, stir, taste and adjust seasoning as needed.
