Nice to serve with lemon roast chicken and maybe a mixed-vegetable medley. Perfect meal for the diabetic!

This sounds really yummy! I'm going to try it with extra virgin olive oil instead of the butter. I like the taste and it would be monosaturated instead of saturated. Butter is yummy, too, but I LOVE olive oil on veggie-rice dishes.

Okay I was bad and didn't use a few things; I didn't have any scallions, my mom doesn't like garlic, and I didn't have any parsley and I don't really care for dill in rice. I know... I'm bad, I hate it when people change my recipes then give it a lower score. HOWEVER! Even with out those it was still very good... before the parmesan was put in. I would have given it 5 stars without the cheese. It would work well with any meat dish being a mellow mushroom and onion flavor with the heartiness of the brown rice. Thanks.
