I made this for the Make It Vegan challenge in ZWT#9 Greek challenge. Excellent! To make it vegan I used Swanson's Flavor Boost(Vegetable) with the water. I used brown basmati rice, so had to cook it about 45 minutes(used 2 cups of water instead of 1 3/4). For the herbs I used basil, oregano, chives, parsley and thyme from the garden. I didn't have button mushrooms so used sliced portobellos. Loved the flavors! Made for team Hot Stuff!

This was such a great way to cook rice. My stove top cooks hot so I always have to watch rice closely. This way it came out perfectly. Loved the flavors in this dish too. Thanks NWG for a nice side dish. Made for ZWT9.

Good recipe! Very tasty. I cooked the rice until the water was absorbed (much longer than 10 minutes).

This rice is so yummy. And it was cooked to perfection. I wasn't sure with only 10 minutes and then 10 minutes to rest with cover. But it worked. It's great with all the veggies. I also used fresh basil and fresh rosemary. Thanks NorthwestGal :) Made for ZWT8 for Diners, Winers and Chives

I served this for our tapas dinner and the whole group raved about it! I did make a few changes but I think I would enjoy the dish as written just as much. One of our party is a vegetarian so I used wine and water in place of the broth and add a little butter after it was cooked to get some of the richness the broth would have given it. I left out the celery -the store was out - and mushrooms DH hates them and I was serving whole ones in another dish. I used fresh basil, rosemary, and lemon thyme and the blend was perfect. This one's a keeper, thanks for another great recipe NWGal! Made by one of The Wild Bunch for ZWT 8

Very nice with Feta Chicken Bake for a ZWT6 Greek dinner tonight. This was very easy to make and the finished product tasted great! I made this as directed, choosing the basil for the first herb. I added a little parsley on top. Thanks NorthwestGal! :)

Very nice, well-seasoned rice dish. I served this as a side with grilled salmon. I didn't have any rosemary, so I just left it out.

Delicious! Delicious! I had to switch it up a little because I though I had a can of mushrooms but I didn't. No big deal thou. I used up some red, green peppers and some chopped up carrots, I had chopped in the fridge, and need to be used. But that was all. I love the fresh herbs, I used rosemary and Basil. My daughter was like.....Oh Mom too bad there ain't going to be leftovers, I really want some for later. LOL *opps* what can I do? too late to double the recipe.
