You can turn this side dish into an easy one-pot dish by simply adding a can of pinto beans along with the rice. This is a meatless recipe.

Made this as a side dish to grilled cheeseburgers. I made this exactly as written and we all enjoyed it. Made for AUS/NZ swap.

A nice side dish that we enjoyed for supper. I used an orange bell pepper (all I had left on hand) and was a bit worried there would be to much liquid but it worked out great. I think I would prefer white rice for this recipe next time as the nutty flavor of the brown rice seemed to be out of place a bit. Thank you morgainegeiser for posting this recipe. Made and reviewed for ZWT5 - Bodacious Brickhouse Babe team.

I LOVED this! I ued white rice, but I ran out of corn kernals so I had to be creative and used creamed corn instead. It was delicious and the kids enjoyed it, we have a Vegetarian homestay girl living with us and she loved it too. Thanks for a dish that the whole family enjoyed. Made for ZWT8, The Fearless Red Dragons.
