I came up with this recipe because my family loves cheese and will not eat carrots. This dish passed for cheese rice and my family loves it, so I have used it ever since

Very pretty and a nice change from regular rice though the carrots really didn't add much flavour - it tasted basically like normal steamed rice. Read More

I agree that the carrots add more color than flavor but it was a nice change and it went perfect with our fish and vegetables dinner. I did add 3 bouillon cubes for a little extra flavor. Thanks Melissa. Read More

I left the carrots raw & added some raw shredded zucchini as well. My lil' one loves rice & this was a great way for me to sneak in some veges as well. As everyone else stated it is a nice change from normal rice & really does look pretty. Thanks Melissa! Read More

Overall I thought this was a good rice side dish. I've made this twice so far and the first time it tasted a bit on the bland side so the second time around I added another chix bouillon cube. It still tastes like it's missing something though. Next time I decide to make this maybe I'll add yet another bouillon cube and maybe some diced onions or something like some other reviewers mentioned. I also used a cup of frozen green peas both times which added a nice color and taste to it. Thanks Melissa. Read More

A good way to fix rice so that's it's a little different and doesn't sabotage my diet plan. (Just for the record though I can't imagine any kid thinking it's cheesy rice!) Read More
