You can tell by the recipe number that this has been on Zaar for a long time; I surprised that it hasn't been treid & reviewed by more chefs! Its a very easy & versatile recipe that gives great flavour to plain old boring brown rice. Due to lack of ingredients, I made the following substitutions: dried thyme for savory, powdered ginger for fresh, purple onion for green & lemon pepper for zest. I added dethawed frozen pea pods & broccoli florets once the celery & onions were tender. I'll repeat this recipe with different veggie combinations in the future. Thanx Robb!

Very good... I'm snowed in here in central Kentucky, trying to cook with what I have on hand. I had a big bag of brown rice and little else. Used dried rosemary and oregano in rice, then Sauteed onions, carrots, and celery in EVOO until tender. Excellent recipe. Thanks!

I did not add the savory,snow peas,lemon or coconut. Just didn't have these on hand. Don't know that I would even use the coconut. BUT, what I did do is: Sautee the gr. onion, celery, ginger and fresh garlic in the 3 TBL butter. Added the chicken broth. Brought it to a boil then added sliced carrots the broccoli, mushrooms, oregano, marjoram, fresh basil and the rice. Brought that to a boil and then simmered for 20 minutes. Absolutely delicious! Next time I will add some slivered water chestnuts for some crunch. Yum!!

I'm not a big fan of broccoli, but this was good. The savory was a bit too strong. I'd use about 4 tsps next time
