    Chef Buggsy Mate's Note:

    When I was a kid my dad came home form work one day and told my mom we weren't going to eat red meat anymore. This coming from a meat and potatoes type of guy was quite surprising to say the least. At that time my mom switched from white rice to brown as she feared we would need an extra nutrient boost. That change didn't make me to happy...brown rice was not at the top of my favorites list. So one day we jazzed it up a bit. Hope you like what we came up with. My family does. (Note: We eat this as a main dish, not a side that is why the serving size is more then a 1/2 cup)

      I used short grain brown rice(my favcrite!) and enjoyed this dish with a mushroom side. I enjoyed the veggies and the cheese was good too. I liked the crunch of the sunflower seeds. Thanks! Made for the Australian Swap March 2010.

      A hearty meal that sticks to the ribs. Have to agree with White Rose Child do not be afraid to try other veggies (thinking baby portabellas would be good). The sunflower seeds give the brown rice a nice new texture and taste. Thanks so much for the post.

      Yummmy! What a great meal- unusual, delicious, and nutritious! It makes a nice-size batch, with leftovers (just my mom and I eating it) but not too many, because we had bigger servings!! LOL. We used a vegan "cheeze" and fewer sunflower seeds, but that's just our taste. To any future reviewers, I'd recommend to consider this a fairly adaptable recipe. You could try bell peppers or green peas, maybe some pine nuts, even mixing in a different grain like millet.... So glad this is now posted! Thanks Buggsy! :-)
