  • Incredible!

    Very easy and very filling when served with rice. I reduced the sodium by omitting the salt, using no-salt-added beans, and substituting water for the broth. The vegetables and spices in the recipe made a very satisfying broth by themselves. - 8/23/10

  • Good, but the broth was not enough to boil the rice. I even threw some water in there and boiled it a little longer, and I still didn't boil all the rice. If I try this again, I'll boil the rice first, strain it, and then add it in. - 1/8/12
