Ingredients:
Cooking spray
2 teaspoons olive oil
1 cup green bell pepper, seeded and chopped
3/4 cup onion, chopped
1/2 cup mushrooms, sliced
3/4 cup carrots, peeled and chopped
1 (2 3/4 oz.) package wild rice, uncooked
1 1/3 cups low-sodium, fat free chicken broth
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground pepper
Fresh cilantro, chopped (optional)
