After reading reviews, I decided to help try to fight the blandness by sauteing half a medium onion and 2 cloves of garlic in oil for making 2 servings of rice. When the onion was soft, I added 1/3C brown rice and sauteed a few minutes. Then I added a little under 2/3C chicken stock and a handful of frozen peas and carrots (skipped the bell pepper). Brought to a boil, covered, reduced heat to low, and simmered 45min. Then stirred in a few handfuls of freshly shredded medium cheddar. If you want better flavor, you have to use medium or sharp cheddar. Added sea salt and white pepper to taste and it was pretty good. I might go with the sharp cheddar myself next time, and maybe use broccoli florets instead of peas/carrots. Could also add diced carrot to the onion saute for flavor.
