So.... I got to the point where you add the Uncle Ben's and discovered I was out(!?!) I had some Trader Joe's Basmati rice blend, added 1 c. of that, 1 t. seasoned salt and assorted herbs. I only used 1 1/2 T. butter and approximately 1/2 c. cream. Really liked the taste and simplicity. Even "slimmed down" it was rich and filling.
Holy Moly, this was delicious! I altered it just a bit by using half the butter (1/4 cup), omitting the carrots, and adding three cloves of garlic. The result could not have been more awesomely tasty.
