  • Incredible!
    I'm vegetarian, so I substituted the vegetarian version of chicken and chicken broth and it turned out excellent. The peppers really make this dish, giving it a slight sweetness. I used a medium onion, diced and along with the broth I added 3 cups of water to get the instant brown rice done. - 3/28/17
