You don't taste the orange in this recipe, it justs helps to mellow the flavor of the garlic. Full of hearty veggies, this can be served as a side dish or a vegetarian meal.

1/4 cup brown rice
1/2 onion, diced
1 garlic, minced
1 cup carrot, finely diced
1 cup butternut squash, peeled & finely diced
1 1/2 cups GF vegetable stock
1 tsp poultry seasoning
Juice from 1 orange (1/2 cup) + 1 tsp zest
