To encourage a picky eater in your family to eat a balanced diet, involve him/her in the preparation. Make a snowman together (for ever lasting Christmas).
Cook brown rice as per package instructions. Put rinsed brown rice into a saucepan, pour in water in proportion 1:2 (for each cup of rice add two cups of water). Salt the water to your taste, bring to boil, reduce heat, cover the saucepan and simmer covered until rice is cooked. Stir rice occasionally (for more even heat distribution).
While rice is prepared, bake your favorite fish. The picture shows baked mahi-mahi with Herbes de Provence mix. Any all natural mix for cooking fish can be used. If no mix is handy, just use a bit of black pepper and garlic salt instead of regular salt.
Make a snowman from brown rice, boiled beans, a carrot piece (nose) and two black peppercorns. The stripes from the tangerine peels can be used for making hair (optional).
