Awesome! Left out celery, used just carrots. Added a little poultry seasoning and used all chicken broth for the liquid. Used short grain brown rice, I even forgot the butter, and this was perfect! Delicious and easy, thank you!
Very Good. The answer to brown rice that tastes and looks like it is just brown cardboard. I used the whole 16 oz. box of Uncle Ben's Natural Whole Grain Brown Rice. This would double the recipe and last all week. I cut the salt and pepper in half and threw in pearlized onion. For the liquid I used one half water and one half V8 Low Sodium Juice. I put this in a stone crockpot and added water/juice as needed for two hours. This must be supervised in the crockpot so you know when to add more liquid and thus, it won't stick. I would not use salt and pepper next time as the V8 Low Sodium Vegetable Juice is well seasoned. The redness from the V8 Juice makes the rice look orange. You can't tell that it is brown rice. I would increase the chopped veggies when doubling the recipe. I would like to see a sweeter version of this with mandarin oranges with shopped green pepper minus the V8 juice. Preferably this recipe should not have a lot of sugar. I am a firm believer that brown rice is a healthier rice because it is high in fiber. This recipe is a great starting point to get brown rice into your diet.
