1/2 tsp. salt
1 3/4 cups raw brown rice

In a large, heavy saucepan, saute the onions and garlic in olive oil with salt until the onions are soft (5-8 minutes). Add the raw rice, green peppers, and spices. Saute over medium heat another 5-8 minutes, stirring frequently.

Add tomato juice. Bring to a boil. Turn the heat way down, cover, and let simmer 15 minutes.
