I had some leftover carrots to use so thought this would be a good recipe. But there was way too much sugar. Blech! And there was very little carrot among all the rice. I tried it a second time without the sugar, I doubled the carrots and then added a clove of garlic and 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese for good measure. Still, it just wasn't anything special. I have to admit, I couldn't bring myself to put an entire stick of butter in my side dish, so only used half a stick... maybe it needed the whole thing to be tasty.
We enjoyed this, a different and easy way to make rice and a vegetable! I did cut the sugar a little, since we are not great sweet fans, I probably put in 2 heaped tablespoons, enough to sweeten the carrots without being over-powering. The amount of water was perfect, and the carrots and rice were perfectly cooked, I really enjoyed this. I think I'll add chopped chives next time, for a slightly different flavour and a nice colour contrast! Much enjoyed, thank you! Made for PAC Fall 2008
This was a tasty rice dish. I've never had this type of sweet rice before. It was quick and easy to make. The rice was perfectly cooked and the carrots were sweet and tender. I added 1/2 the butter and cream, this was still a very rich dish . Thank you for posting.
