Even not having every ingredient on hand, it was still delicious! I didn't have zucchini, so used 1/2 cup finely diced celery and about 1/4 cup diced onion in addition to the grated carrot. I doubled the sunflower seeds. I also didn't have red pepper flakes on hand, so missed out on the heat. That said, it was really good! It had a great crunchy texture; the rice was nice and fluffy--not gooey. Because I am not a health nut, I added 2 tablespoons of butter in with the rice and broth. We also salted at table-it is a lower salt recipe. As I was making it, I thought raisins or other dried fruit would be good also. Paula G, thanks for another super recipe! We eat a lot of brown rice and I will be making this often!
I thought this was really good. I liked the additions to jazz up plain brown rice. I like that there isn't any butter or extra, unneeded fat added to it. I added a little chopped onion and a dash of garlic powder. I'll definitely make this again.
I made this tonight to go with Pineapple Chicken. Love the veggies and nuts. I'll probably add a little garlic and onion next time.
Yummy! Yummy! Yummy! I made this to go with Panfried Fish#392155 and I am soooo glad I did. Delicious! I did use Texmati Royal Blend Rice (white, brown, red and wild rice) and added some diced onion and garlic along with fresh parsley. Definately going into my Favorites of 2012. I could believe that DH ate it all and wanted more. Thank you for posting!
Delicious! I used 3 c. instant brown rice, 1 c. each carrots & zucchini, handful each of seeds & almonds, & 2 lg. cloves garlic. Revised: this time I used 1 c. long grain brown rice, 1/2 shredded zucchini, a little chopped celery, 1 clove garlic, almonds, and seeds and my hubby said he liked it :) Kids didn't, but they change their mind everytime!
this is so good! i tried to slice the almonds by myself, but they turned out to be crumbled instead. i think i accidentally but too much red pepper in though...
Fast, easy, delicious side dish suitable for company. As is, or customized, it always gets rave reviews. Thanks for the creative inspiration!
Made this along with some Aussie-style grilled shrimp skewers and sauteed veggies, and it was awesome!! I followed the recipe to the 'T' and loved the crunch that the nuts added to the dish!
I am addicted to this rice! Absolutely love it by itself and have yet to find a dish that it does not pair well with. Looks like this is going to become one of my "go to" side dishes!
This was a hot with my family. Served with BBQ shrimp. The only thing I added was a touch of balsamic vinegar
