I made this with instant rice boiled the carrot, boullion, butter and water first then added the rice. It turned out great and looked very pretty. A nice way to add some vegetabels to our diet.

Yummy. though the carrots really didnt add much to the taste just the texture..

Very pretty and a nice change from regular rice, though the carrots really didn't add much flavour - it tasted basically like normal steamed rice.

I agree that the carrots add more color than flavor, but it was a nice change and it went perfect with our fish and vegetables dinner. I did add 3 bouillon cubes for a little extra flavor. Thanks Melissa.

This was very good and presented well. I also added in some diced onion and green pepper for color!

I left the carrots raw & added some raw shredded zucchini as well. My lil' one loves rice & this was a great way for me to sneak in some veges as well. As everyone else stated, it is a nice change from normal rice & really does look pretty. Thanks Melissa!

Overall, I thought this was a good rice side dish. I've made this twice so far and the first time it tasted a bit on the bland side so the second time around I added another chix bouillon cube. It still tastes like it's missing something though. Next time I decide to make this maybe I'll add yet another bouillon cube and maybe some diced onions or something like some other reviewers mentioned. I also used a cup of frozen green peas both times which added a nice color and taste to it. Thanks Melissa.

A good way to fix rice so that's it's a little different and doesn't sabotage my diet plan. (Just for the record, though, I can't imagine any kid thinking it's cheesy rice!)
