Fresh & easy dish. Other than the flavour I like the fact you can pre-cook the brown rice ahead of time. Then closer to meal time you can saute your vegys & through it together. Then if you have a convection oven, you have brown rice ready in less than 30 mins. Due to preference, the only change I made was to omit the nuts. All the other ingredients were bang on but found it was only enough for 8 servings. A keeper recipe, thanks for sharing.
I used long grain white rice with wild rice. I didn't add the butter at the end. The taste was perfect without it. And instead of cashews, I used slivered almonds. I'm so glad to have leftover for tomorrow :) Thanks for this great recipe :)
Easy way to fancy up rice for a side dish. I would add some dried herbs next time, though, for a little more flavor. Some thyme or rosemary, maybe. I used toasted almond slivers, instead of cashews.
