This was a very tasty side dish to baked fish & broccoli! I used long grain white rice (all that I had) and I put everything into my steamer at step 4. Thanx Chia!

This does indeed make a tasty side dish, and a pretty one to boot.

I've made this before and we do like it. Since we are not majot cheese eaters, I leave out the cheese and chives. I also use Maggi Veg. Broth with onions as a substitute for chicken stock. I do cut down on the fat(we use Sunflower cooking oil instead of butter). Garnished with fresh parsley, this makes a pretty pilaf!
