  1. I agree that the word spiced does not belong but a nice change of pace for brown rice. I doubled the cilantro (which I used fresh) and i will add much more next time as it seems to get lost in the rice. Thanks for the post =)
  2. This was quick and easy but I added some ingredients as other readers suggested to improve the flavor. I added 1 can of Rotelle (?sp) with chile peppers and about 1/2 c of onions. I also ommitted the olive oil and used chicken stock instead of water. Will make again.
  3. I didn't have cumin seeds so I substituted ground cumin (1/2 t.) Otherwise I followed the recipe exactly as written. I would make this again. Hubby liked it as is I would prefer to add sauteed onions to the mix after cooking. all in all a good recipe
  4. Quick and easy - a staple in my house now. Not really 'spiced' but it does have some nice subtle flavor to it. Thanks!
  5. Tasty brown rice recipe. Always use chicken stock and add extra corn. Any type of spice blend that you like will work.
  6. This is a great recipe and very easy to make. I boiled the rice in vegetable broth and added just a little bit of onion and shaved carrot - not enough to overpower. It was really good.
  7. This is very good - but it's plain the word "spiced" does not belong in the name. The rice cooks up nicely and tastes good and the corn goes well but you'd have to add a lot more spice before you would notice it with all that water and cooking time! I used fresh corn - Read more ...
  8. Very easy and tasty. I like the texture of the brown rice and the cumin is a nice flavor. Next time I will probably add some chopped red or green pepper to give it a little color.
  9. Surprise: An instant favorite for my husband! I was doing it for a gathering and used one 2-Cup pkg brown rice 1 teasp salt 1 teasp fresh ground cumin. The can of Veg-All I had in the cupboard did not spoil the lovely flavors at all but improved them. As Asians sometimes do I made - Read more ...
