I am so happy I found this recipe! The peppers and mushrooms add so much to plain old rice. I didn't have the celery, but the rice was great without it.
I really enjoyed this rice and my DH who isnt a big fan of peppers liked it too. Kept sliced mushrooms a bit to long in the crisper drawer so I wasnt able to use them but they will be added next time. Very easy to make, while rice is cooking I chopped and sauteed the vegetables. Served with susie cooks Parmesan Chicken Strips and sliced peaches. Thank you Carly for posting a wonderful rice side dish.
