Great rice side dish! I left out the green beans and substituted dill for the thyme. Went perfectly with our grilled salmon.

This was really good and really easy... Changes I had to make were no onion (out), Italian seasoning instead of thyme (out), and a frozen veggie medley of green beans, corn, and carrots rather than the carrots and beans separate. I used one whole can of broth and made this in a large deep skillet so it was done a little quicker than the recipe says. Really light and tasty. Will keep in my cookbook!
