Hi: I found as I was cooking the sauce it seemed rather thick. I simply added some Almond milk to the thickness I liked. I did use 4 tablespoons of flour - next time i will try 3.
I haven't tried this recipe as yet, but according to the ingredient list you use cooked rice. Is the casserole still too dry even when you use cooked rice as listed in the recipe? Also, instead of bouillon and water, I will be adding chicken broth. It sounds like a good recipe!
We loved it!! The recipe might have been updated since previous reviews, since there were complaints about no salt in the recipe (1/4 tsp salt listed when I printed it, although "add salt" was missing), not enough liquid to cook rice (the recipe as I printed it says to use already cooked rice) and no instructions on bullion (my copy says to add bullion with the water). I did amp up the veggies a lot (over a pound of veggies, green beans/wax beans/baby carrots/corn/peas) and used drop biscuits instead of breadcrumbs, and I used an 11" by 13" pan to hold all of it. Because of the increase in veggies, next time I will double the liquid portion. Everyone ate it and liked it, even the 2-year-old and the 5-year-old!! Hubby asked me to make it again!
There needs to be a lot more liquid in this recipe. Just made it and had to keep adding water so it wouldn't dry out. Even so, lots of the rice didn't get cooked. Recipe was very easy, and I am happy to find something dairy free, but if you make it, check it every 5 minutes and add more liquid if needed. Also, no where in recipe does it say to add salt. Needs salt.
I just loved this recipe!! I will be making this often. I checked the label on the boulion and found dairy so I used a product called, 'Better Than Boulion' that is chicken extract..
This was great...even my picky husband liked it. The ingredients list chicken boulillon powder, but the recipe never uses it, so I left it out and it didn't seem that anything was missing. I'll definitely make it again!
