This was a dish my mom made. I am from the Caribbean where pumpkin is a savory vegetable. I serve this with pork chops or roasted pork and it always gets rave reviews. If I am in a hurry, I use canned carrots and mash them.

Directions

  1. Bring the brown rice and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, and the liquid has been absorbed, 45 to 50 minutes.
  2. When the rice has nearly finished cooking, heat oil in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat, and cook and stir garlic just until fragrant. Reduce heat to medium, stir in pumpkin, and cook until heated through, about 1 minute. Stir in carrots and cook for 2 minutes. Stir in salt and cloves. Remove from heat; stir in the cooked rice until well blended. Serve warm.

This was ok. I followed the recipe exactly. HOwever, I found the clove flavor to be kind of strong and I was expecting it to be sweet for some reason.

I thought this was an interesting and tasty variation on brown rice. We prefer to eat brown rice for health reasons, but I don't really care for it, so I'm always looking for ways to jazz it up. We had this rice with pork chops and will definitely be making it again.
