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."

I 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.

Great 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!

World'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.

While 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!

I 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!
