Vegetable Rice Medley Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)

Colorful but lackluster. No flavor. Needs perking up, big time. With plain rice, you expect a mild, unseasoned flavor. But when the rice is pretty and colorful as this is, your taste buds expect something more than just...plain rice. Because I used regular long-grain rice, which I cooked in chicken broth, I sauteed the squash in a separate pan in olive oil. I used a fair amount of dill and Parmesan but this just didn't take off. I finally threw in some Penzey's Fox Point seasoning which at least helped. This needs butter, olive oil or even some bacon fat. The rice should be cooked in broth. It needs seasoning - your choice. It needs green onion maybe, or regular onion or garlic. It needs pepper. But you shouldn't have to work with a recipe this much.

This was okay but not that great. I don't think the dill flavor really goes with this dish and the other ingredients. Maybe basil instead. I even used fresh squash and tomatoes from my garden and it wasn't that great. If I made it again, which I probably won't, I would use basil and some garlic. It also needed more salt that called for.

This was very tasty. Sadly, we ate later than I had planned, so the rice was not the proper consistency anymore, but it was still good, and I'm sure it is better right after it's cooked!
