Goes great with roast turkey, chicken, salmon, or trout. An impressive dish to have when guests arrive. Very hearty eating.

This rice was delicious! I used a mixture of white and wild as that is all that I had on hand - I cooked it for 20 minutes. I also added a bit of chopped red pepper for some colour. It was very easy to prepare and a huge hit at our thanksgiving dinner. I highly recommend this recipe! I also noted that it only took 30 minutes to reheat the entire product (after mixing in veggies and cheese).

Served this with cornish game hens, it was a big success. Could even be made the day before.

I made this for dinner last night, and my husband said (for the first time in 24 years of marriage) "we could serve this dish to guests!" LOL-I hope that isn't a comment on my usual cooking! I substituted carrots for the bell peppers, as no one in my house will eat peppers, and used about twice the veggies that the recipe called for. Next time I will try it in my slow cooker. Thanks for a great recipe!
