Vegetarian Oven-Baked Brown and Wild Rice with Eggplant Recipe Reviews - Allrecipes.com (Pg. 1)
Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2011
I made a few changes: excluded the onion, substituted kidney beans for red bean, substituted cumin for turmeric, added cheddar cheese The rice and yogurt mixture was a little bland. If I make this again I'll definitely use the onion and probably add a little more spice. I think the cheese was a necessary addition though. Overall, I think this is a good solid, healthy vegetarian meal.

I really liked it. I thought the flavor of the vegetables really came out and I loved the dense yet fluffy texture of the rice. The flavor wasn't strong, so next time I might try to add a bit more spice, or some cheese as another rater suggested.

Made this dish when I had some friends over. Since several people noted that it was rather bland I kicked up the spices, adding turmeric and paprika along with 1/2 a head of garlic. This seemed to give it a bit more pep, however I think I would season it even more a 2nd time around. Also, the left-overs heated up extremely well.

I really liked this recipe! I did make just a couple changes. I added mushrooms and used rice pilaf instead of Uncle Ben's. I also wish I had kept the skins on the eggplant for better presentation. But oh well.

Excellent! Used regular brown rice. Substituted sour cream instead of yogurt. Added more spices-more turmeric, chili powder and cumin. Topped with cheese. Overall a delicious vegetarian recipe.

I have heart issues, so this recipe with low fat and low salt is just right for me. I will add more spices as other reviews suggested.

Takes a little while to do the prep and to cook, but WELL worth it. The texture of everything combined is absolutely perfect! To give it a little extra flavor I did 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper, a dash more of the turmeric, 3/4 teaspoon of the salt, and 1/2 teaspoon extra of the minced garlic. By doing that, I think it brought out more flavor without having to go overboard in anything. It was excellent. Super delicious and healthy vegetarian dish that's rich in flavor.
