Healthy, because

Even smarter

This dish is extremely well rounded, containing grains, vegetables, and healthy fats. It can be a perfect side dish or even a great, vegetarian main course. 

You can add some meat or tofu to this for more protein, and if you don't have wild rice, you can use regular rice.
