    Mary K. W.'s Note:

    'Top Shelf' according to my son. I originally found this on RecipeCottage.com, but I guess that site is no longer available. So I wanted to post it on Zaar for safe keeping. I usually omit the carrot unless I just have some on hand. I don't think it adds that much to the recipe, other than color. While the recipe calls for 2 1/2 cups of vegetable broth, I usually just use one can and then add enough water to make 2 1/2 cups. We sometimes squirt a little lime juice on the rice as well ... really adds to the flavor.

      Delicious rice! It went great with a simple split pea dal. I halved the recipe; all the amounts of everything are perfect, and it's so simple. I really like the cilantro and other flavors that combine here. Thanks for posting!
