This is a wonderfully healthy rice recipe. I love that you can just throw the rice in the pan with your favorite chopped vegies and put it in the oven (stirring every 20-30 min or so). I will definately be using this one again. Thanks Holly. (BTW...i added ginger, soy, and lots of garlic, and to me it was great this way)
This wasn't bad, but it was pretty bland and it took a lot longer than an hour for the rice to cook. The veggies, however, were limp by the time I took the dish out of the oven. I wouldn't want to make this one again.
This recipe is easy and healthy. I did make some changes. Instead of garlic and onion powder, I used about 1/2 cup chopped onion and 2 cloves of minced garlic. I sauteed these in a dutch oven with olive oil, then added the water, rice, bouillion, salt and pepper and brought to a boil. Then I covered and placed in oven at 375. It's important the the water is boiling before going in oven! After 1/2 hour I added the vegetables. I ended up baking for about 70 minutes, but I think it could have baked for another 10 minutes, as some of the wild rice hadn't popped open yet. Very tasty and I love how it uses such colorful vegetables!
I cooked this recipe at 350 for an hour and it wasn't near done so I turned up the heat to 450 and still had to cook another hour. The veggies were overdone of course, but the rice was still not quite done and there was lots of liquid sitting on top. I let the entire casserole sit in the oven for another 40 minutes and the rice finally plumped up. The flavor was so/so. I doubt I'll make this again.
This receipe is very good when you change a few things around. I suggest adding broccolli instead of red pepper and no celery. Add 1 can veg broth, instead of 1 cube. Add water only as needed. The rice takes far longer to cook, so stiring every 15-20 minutes will help. Add at least 3tbls of salt & pepper for a better taste. Add chicken to this and it turns out great. My kids really do love it!
This was fine for a weeknight meal, though it took a long time to cook. I used broccoli, carrots, zucchini, mushrooms, onions and fresh garlic. I also cooked it at 375 and it still took over an hour, even stirring every 20 minutes. I used chicken broth (all I had on hand). The rice was still a little chewy while the veggies were pretty mushy. I actually really liked it, but my husband wasn't wild and my kids wouldn't eat it past the one required bite.
I liked the final product, however, it did NOT cook for 1 hour in the oven. I had to finish cooking it in the microwave because my main course was finished and my guests were waiting.
Overall, I liked this recipe. I cooked it at 375 for an hour and 15 minutes to and an hour and 30 minutes. It definitely wouldn't have been done in an hour at 350. I also added mushrooms, which I sauteed in butter first, and fresh onions and garlic instead of onion powder and garlic powder.
