Asian Style Rice

It is quite obvious that I love cooking rice, because it is so versatile and can be mixed up many different ways. The possibilities are endless!  If you are unable to find purple peppers substitute for yellow or orange. Serves 4 -6.

1 red pepper, stem and seeds removed and finely diced
