This recipe makes a delicious side dish. Goes good with meats and veggies. It's a tasty rice with a little bit of spice! I LOVE garlic, so if you don't like it as much as I do, then just add 2 cloves instead of 6.

This rice recipe was a wonderful change from plain rice. I used my food processor to chop up the veggies so this was easy to prepare. I liked the flavor the chicken stock gave the rice and of course adding mushrooms always makes rice taste better.

On the surface it doesn't seem like this would be anything special...but it was. Not too boldly flavored, but not too plain or wimpy either. Just perfect in my mind (tho' I did use regular, long grain converted rice), and I loved the additions of the red pepper and mushrooms. Hubs called this "a work of art." And speaking of Hubs, in consideration of his sensitive innards, I left out the red pepper flakes. I doubt we could have enjoyed this more had I included it. An excellent choice paired with chicken, fish or other seafood.

Deeeeeelicious! Eating it as I type. I used red onion because I had one huge yellow and three small red. The only thing I will change next time is less stock. I also added some fresh parsley from my garden for the pic. LOVE the mushrooms in it!!
