Very easy to make. The kids had no idea the zucchini was in there we have a lot shredded. There were no left overs. I also used long grain brown rice instead of white rice which my husband loves!! Read More

I followed all of the directions and spent a lot of time making sure it was perfect. It was extremely easy to make but I couldn't eat it. It was way too creamy and the taste was bland. Maybe it was the mushroom soup or the mayo? I am not a picky eater at all but I couldn't stomach the taste and creaminess. My boyfriend didn't even want to eat it and he'll eat anything. Read More

Thought this had a really nice flavor! Oven wasn't working so I just fried my veggies and threw all the rest in a pot on top of the stove until rice was done. Had to watch it a bit more but turned out great. Didn't have chestnuts so added a can of bamboo shoots and some red pepper for color! Read More
