“This is a great side dish - fast, flexible and easy (cooks in 1 pan)! I serve it with fish, but it would also go great with chicken. You can use it with any style of rice. Try different vegetables, too!” - by JBurley

"This side dish I agree is easy and makes good size portions, but I would recommend using a chicken, vegetable or even beef broth instead of water for more depth of flavor. The spices are strong (I wou..." See moreld have held back a little on the thyme), but compliment the veges. Cooking the vegetables with the rice makes them mushier than I would have liked, so I may not cook them much first next time. I also added fresh mushrooms and topped with parmesan cheese when served. Husband generally liked this, so we will try it again."
"Very good! I used couscous instead of rice(1 cup water + 1 Cup couscous)and I mixed it all together once the couscous was steamed and fluffed. I will probably make it the same way with the rice becaus..." See moree I afraid that the veggies might be overcooked for my taste. I will be making this again with rice, couscous or maybe even pastas like orzo and risi. Thank you for this versatile gem!"
