Easy to prepare, for me this was fine as was, I didn't stir and didn't need more liquid. I used long grain rice, drained tomatoes as suggested and used the juice to make up the broth. A tasty rice which made a good accompaniment to a vegetarian supper! Made for PAC Spring 2009

This is a nice way to add some life to plain rice! We enjoyed this very much and it is so easy to make. I did stir the rice after the first 10 minutes. The only change I might try next time is to add 1/4 cup more liquid. Made for *Zaar Cookbooks Tag 2008* game
