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."
Melt butter in large skillet over medium-high heat. Add almonds; stir until lightly browned. Add onions and red pepper; cook for 2 minutes or until tender. Add rice, green beans, white pepper, and tarragon. Stir until thoroughly heated.

terri101959 2 years 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 2 years 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 2 years 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.

GrandmaBarbara 3 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!
