This was a wonderful side. Like something you would expect to be served in a very nice restaurant. Sauteeing the veggies and rice in the butter really infused the flavors into the rice. I added the spices and seasonings into the mix and sauteed for a few minutes before adding the broth so the oils would release from them into the butter. SUCH GREAT flavor! Came out beautifully! GREAT recipe Rachel! Thanks for sharing!
