Recipe by HokiesMom
Adapted from Quick Cooking Dec 2001 recipe. A very pretty side dish that goes well with a variety of meats.

This was okay, but a bit bland for our tastes. The basil didn't come through very well, and I had to add onion and salt to give a bit more flavor. It was easy to tweak, and pretty and colorful, but could have been better.
- 1⁄2 teaspoon dried basil
- 2 tablespoons butter
- 2 1⁄2 cups fat-free low-sodium chicken broth
- 1 cup uncooked long grain rice
- 1⁄2 cup shredded carrot
- 1 medium zucchini, halved and thinly sliced
