After seeing Magpie's picture I want to try this with asparagus! DH is also intrigued with using some of the dried hot Mexican peppers in place of the sweet red one. This time, though, I made it exactly to the recipe and it came out great. It was just one piece of a terrific ZWT supper, but DD16 commented that it was the rice that tied it all together, because it went so well with each other item on the plate. Made for Zaar World Tour 5.
I went vegetarian with this recipe & used vegetable instead of chicken broth, but other than that I included everything as indicated & had a very satisfying dinner & even get a keeper of a recipe, too! Many thanks! [Tagged, made & reviewed during the ZINGO part of ZWT5]
A tasty one-dish meal for summer produce. I made this all out of the garden (except the rice and olive oil). I went ahead and finished cooking the rice on the stovetop, instead of heating the oven. The grains were a little soft, but the dish is flavorful enough that we gobbled it down. I, too, found the order of the instructions quite difficult. I think it would be clearer to give the steps for making the sauce, then the vegetable/rice saute, then the assembly and final cooking. It's easy to make you've worked out the steps.
Made for ZWT 5 Zingo also. This was a tasty rice dish, thanks! I was a little confused with the directions as to when to stop putting things in the blender, but once I got cooking it made sense. A few subs, I also used veg broth, and I used brown short grain rice. I didn't find the need to add any more liquid with the brown rice. Unfortunately didn't have zucchini or green beans so I used asparagus instead. I think you could use any veg and it would work out well. Kids loved it too - thanks!
An excellent dish, which I prepared to accompany French Onion Chicken for a marvellous midweek supper. Easily put together, I prepared everything in advance, and the actual cooking goes very quickly with the minimum of fuss. I subbed a vegetarian garlic and herb broth, rather than the chicken broth, in this way this becomes an excellent vegetarian main or side dish. Wonderful flavour, this cooked perfectly and was very much enjoyed by all. Made for Zingo! ZWT 5
