OK, I got to retry this one after burning it the first. I noticed that it burnt because the liquid from the vegetables was absorbed into the rice before the rice browned. This time I browned the rice and the vegetables separately. I also used ground cumin instead of the seeds. I had a lot of chicken broth left over from another recipe so I used chicken broth instead of the water. It came out pretty good. I think maybe next time I'll add a little kick with just a pinch or 3 of cayenne pepper. Thanks

A tasty, easy to make side dish! I used ground cumin & diced tomatoes that were left from another recipe. Thanx Di!
