  1. Pour the vegetable broth, chicken broth, and pineapple juice into a large saucepan, and bring to a boil over high heat. Stir in the brown rice, raisins, turmeric, and cumin, bring back to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, and the liquid has been absorbed, about 10 minutes.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook and stir the onion, zucchini, mushrooms, red and yellow pepper for about 5 minutes, until the vegetables have softened.
  3. While the vegetables are cooking, stir together honey, 1 tablespoon of oil, lemon juice, ginger, and black pepper in a bowl. Stir honey mixture, cooked vegetables, and pineapple into the cooked rice, bring the mixture back to a boil, and serve hot.

It had a weird flavor that didn't seem to be as good as all the ingredients that went into it. The citrus flavor really came through, if that's what your goal is.

A little heavy on the spices, I would scale back on the turmeric and cumin next time or just add more rice to the pot. It took more like 1 hr to prepare. Also, I can't eat onions or MSG (migrain...

Tried chicken in it, and Aztec rice. Was ok

I wanted so much to like this recipe since I like everything that went into it- but unfortunately it really didn't work at all for me. Would not make again.
