Nutty brown rice, highlighted with crisp green beans and almonds
"I made this for a party and even the kids ate it and raved about it! My friends ate it all! They even ate it cold. It was incredibly easy to make too. I had most of the ingredients in the kitchen already. Now all of my friends think I am some sort of incredible chef even though I know almost nothing about cooking."- Lajiesq

terri101959 5 months agoI toasted the rice and 1/4 cup of orzo, put that in the rice cooker with 3 chopped carrots, frozen green beans and 2:1 broth to rice. Also added some dry oregano and chopped scallions. Very good.
Jldozer 6 months agoGreat side dish! I didn't have red peppers or tarragon so those got left out. Also used canned green beans. Once I browned the almonds and cooked the onions. I added all the ingredients (uncooked rice and vegetable broth and all other ingredients) to the rice cooker and let it finish the job for me. Super easy!
billmc44 7 months agoWorld's greatest Mother in law and I thought this was a great way to combine the green vegetable with the starch. Picky Wife, however, did not like the frozen French cut green beans. She said, 'next time, try canned'. Perhaps I will. Love the grn bn & rice combo.
melegan 1 year agoWas delicious, tried it a second time with cous cous and worked just as well.
Bonteach5 1 year agoThis was great! I used fresh green beans and dried basil...
GrandmaBarbara 2 years agoWhile preparing this it seemed a bit dry, but that wasn't the case at all when served. We had baked Parmesan tilapia with this. Excellent!
kimboorleelee 2 years agoI used my favorite whole grain rice blend & added pecans (because I realized too late that I was almost out of almonds), and it was delicious!

seemoreno 4 years agoHealthy & flavorful.. the kids loved it! Paired well with an asian chicken recipe.
hanan@home 6 years agoHealthy and delicious. This is wonderful served with meatloaf.
kellygiese 6 years agoI lost my connection while printing, so I went by memory and used Olive Oil...I also added celery and garlic and omitted the tarragon. It still turned out good...I used frozen green beans and red pepper from my garden...mmmmm good!
swibirun 6 years agoAn excellent side dish, appeasing in taste and presentation. We used almond slices instead of slivers so they cooked a little too fast. Next time I would oven toast them and add them with the rice.

promfh 7 years agoThis didn't take long. I had cooked brown rice to use up. I served it with Chicken Picatta for a wholesome and delicious dinner.
