    We really enjoyed this. I was trying to use some veggies before they went bad, so I used yellow bell peppers, green onion and halved grape tomatoes. Like another reviewer, I cooked my rice in chicken broth. Then I just tossed it with the veggies and cheese, added some garlic powder and baked at 350 until my entree was done. I will definitely make again and probably continue to experiement with this basic recipe. Thanks for sharing!  -  25 Aug 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is outstanding as written. I was short of onion, so I added "onion-onion" seasoning which adds garlic flavor also. Hubby loved it too, so next time I'll make more. When I make brown rice I make extra, so it is waiting in the refrigerator for the next time.  -  24 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    what a great idea to add cheese...all i did was use chicken broth instead of just plain water and stir in the cheese when it was done - i didn't have any peppers. it was very tasty - i've made it twice in the past week.  -  23 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
