Very good! Kids LOVED it!! I did add about 2tbs butter before adding the vegetables and rice and I would also recommend adding a bit more vegetables. I used about 3/4 cups of each. Thanks for the very easy and yummy side dish!!:) Read More

I'm sorry...my family will eat almost anything and we like all the ingrediants in this recipe but the appearance texture and taste of this recipe was horrible! I didn't change a thing (unfortunately) and I normally do not give very negative reviews but this looked like mushed baby food and tasted worse. Sorry. Read More

This was very good once I changed the recipe. I used leftover regular brown rice fried onion and garlic and lots of spices (curry oregano mixed pepper seasoning. Warning all recipes usually need to have seasonings added per one's own taste. I also used homemade cream of broccoli soup with from scratch vegetable stock. I did not have cauliflower to add. I substituted an egg for the water and added a little cheese. Turned out like risotto only much easier. Thanks for the recipe; but I usually alter all of them. Hope these ideas help someone else too.

I used what I had on hand - cream of mushroom soup white rice and 1 C broccoli it ended up being much more rice than veggies; I think there is room to add more broccoli/cauliflower. it is on the bland side but to me that's what kids like. easy to make so thumbs up! Read More
