    nannymm's Note:

    This is a deliciously spicy take on brown rice and barley. It's low fat and since the grains are complex carbs, this dish fits into my low fat, diabetic diet quite nicely.

      We loved this! I did make a couple of changes because of personal taste. I wanted to use jasmine rice (our favorite), so I cooked it separately and added it at the end (it doesn't take as much time to cook). The only other thing I did differently was to use more chipotle pepper because we like things kicked up a bit. I used a large pepper...next time I'll add even more. This recipe was easy and very very good!

      Delish! We really liked this. It is spicy and creamy and easy to make. I used veggie broth and only oil spray but otherwise kept to the recipe. Thanks for posting, I'd make this again for sure.

      Enjoyed every bite of this! It is very rich, and made a wonderful lunch. The toasted pecans and fresh spinach in this are fabulous. I did not have chipotle chiles, so I put in about 1/8 t. of cayenne pepper. I also added a little salt during the cooking process. This is a great recipe! Thanks for posting it.
