1/2 cup wild rice

1 teaspoon onion powder
2 tablespoons margarine (no trans fats)
1 cube vegetable bouillon 
2 cups hot water
Salt and ground black pepper to taste 

1. Preheat the oven to 350ºF.

2. Rinse the rice and pour into a 2-quart baking dish. Add the bell peppers, zucchini, carrot, and celery. Stir in the garlic powder, onion powder, and margarine. Pour the hot water over the bouillon cube to dissolve, then add to the rice mixture and cover.
