This recipe is really good. A definite keeper. DH added chunky hot picante sauce to his at the table and pronounced it a 5*. DS and I preferred it without the picante sauce. It has a light lemon/savory flavor. I did use regular long grain rice and adjusted the liquid and cooking time accordingly, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Thanks for sharing.
What a simple recipe to make! I varied the veggies a bit, according to what I had in the fridge, but stuck to the recipe otherwise. It came together quickly and had a lovely lemony flavour. Great with a bit of parmesan cheese sprinkled on top.
DELICIOUS! I served this with Teriaki sauce, butter, and Louisana Hot Sauce and added red pepper flakes, too.
