      Nice rice recipe. No outstanding flavors, but a pleasant sweetness, and gorgeous color. As other reviewers have stated, would be great for a buffet menu.

      Loved it! The flavoring is perfect: it's distinct yet mellow enough to serve under a spicy dish. The color is beautiful. I used a long grain brown rice, which was a little undercooked. Next time I will add a bit more water and cook longer so that the brown rice will work better. Thanks for posting. Made for the Dec 08 veggie swap.

      We really enjoyed fact, I'm still enjoying it, for my lunch! Everything cooked perfectly according to recipe, which I was pleased about, I like being able to put the lid on and leave it to its own devices, I found the texture of rice and carrot excellent, light and fluffy but still moist, and I found the flavour good, especially when teaming it with a flavourful curry, when the dishes need to complement each other. I did use sesame oil, perhaps that added a little zing too! Thanks for a great recipe, Amanda!
