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!
