I made this, using about 3/4 cup of brown rice and 1/4 cup of wild rice and it is amazing. I made it to eat with pot roast and cabbage and was a great side dish!

Great simple recipe, I used basmati instead of long-grain rice, and upped the quantities by 50% to serve 4, and it was really tender and tasty; perfect to accompany a vegetable curry.

Great, easy recipe. Proportions are a bit off on the rice to broth ratio- Use 1-1/2 cup broth for every 1 cup brown rice. I also added corn, sautéed zucchini and carrot. Nice side dish.

This a an excellent recipe! Very simple and tasty and should be great with just about any dish. I changed the recipe just a little. I only used about 1/4 of a small yellow onion and 3 stalks of green onion. I used low-sodium and low fat chicken broth. I only added about 1/8 of a teaspoon of black pepper and no salt. The regular Mahatma brown rice took about 65 minutes. A small frying pan may be a little too small, I used a regular size pan. We ate the pilaf with grilled chicken breasts marinated in Italian dressing, and steamed broccoli... a very delicious dinner.

Love this brown rice, it's very flavorful and all of my friends love it. I'm new to cooking and I always come back to this recipe to make it again. I started doing double batches because it goes so quickly. Thank you for this delicious and healthy recipe!!

Great way to mix it up when you tire of plain brown rice. I only used 1/2 the amount of brown sugar called for and would use even less next time. It could be that my onion was really sweet.I'm looking forward to trying it again with some toasted almonds. Thanks for posting this really versatile recipe.

Yummy and super easy to make. Way better than plain steamed brown rice. I added peas and carrots. Wish I had almonds on hand. Pine nuts would be great as well!
