One of my mom's famous recipes - she made this quite often growing up. An excellent side dish with chicken.

Brought back memories of my childhood! Great combination of ingredients to add flavor to plain rice. I added a chopped carrot with the other veggies because I just can't resist adding more veggies to things. Must be the "Mom" in me! I used slightly less water and cooked the rice longer, about 25 minutes.
