This is a really nice base for a rice casserole. For this first attempt I put more veggies then the recipe called for. I also made the rice with two cups of water (instead of three) and added in some flax seeds. You can really play around with this recipe which is what makes it the good base I mentioned before! For next time I think I'll make 1.5 cups of rice minimum.
