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.
This was very plain and really had no flavor. My family did not like it at all. Would not make this one again.
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!
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.
Very tasty! I used Minute Brown Rice-don't have the patience for conventional & salted the water with garlic salt. I also added broccoli, mushrooms and diced zucchini. It was a bit dry so I added some chicken broth. Even the non-rice lovers ate it all-proof that everything tastes better with cheese!
An easy and tasty recipe :) I usually add some broccoli to mine and everyone loves it - especially my 4 yr old who LOVES broccoli! Next time, will try mushrooms and the bell peppers :) This also makes a great stuffing for boneless skinless chicken breasts ^_^
Yummy! I made a few changes which is why I only rated 4 stars. I didn't have bell peppers, but I had so many jalapeno peppers from my garden. I added one jalapeno pepper chopped. I sauteed the pepper and onion and added about a cup of frozen broccoli which I let thaw slightly. I also boiled the rice in chicken broth to give more flavor. This is a keeper!
I wanted to use up some green onions, so I used them in place of the red onion and tried adding a garlic clove. It was good! I made it for just one serving and enjoyed it.
