  1. Lovely and easy, kept the recipe the same and it came out fantastic, it's a keeper!
  2. Doubled the rice and tuna. Kept it to one can of mushroom soup and added a bit of veg. broth to moisten the rice. Also added a bit of seasoning, garlic powder and parsely and french fried onion on top in the last five minutes of cooking. Enjoyed it for a quick comfort meal.
  3. Tasty and QUICK! Next time I will double the recipe because it doesn't make enough! I thought I was missing a major ingredient! Or maybe just add more peas or another veggie for "bulk". Also, I will use the REGULAR Cream of Mushroom soup next time. I thought the flavor of the GOLDEN Mushroom was just too rich for this mild dish.
  4. This was positively yummy!!! Very simple to put together with ingredients I already had in the pantry. I did use regular cream of mushroom soup. I microwaved the brown rice. Quick, tasty supper. Husband said it was a keeper. Very economical as well....
  5. This recipe is great! I've made it three times for dinner and it's a hit! I used albacore tuna instead and also a bag of mixed frozen veggies instead of just peas. Doubled the recipe each time and it fit into a small casserole dish and was enough food for two people as a main mean - plus a slight bit of leftovers. I am not a huge fan of brown rice at all - but this recipe combines enough ingredients to make it very tasty! Thank you for the great idea!
