Reviews for Broccoli Brown Rice Pilaf
"Very tasty!! Defiantly make this again."
"Rice was crunchy first time I made this, so added 1/2 cup extra liquid and cooked for 55 minutes. Much better! Also, made it with carrots and peas for a change. Hubby loved it both ways."
"This was a very good side dish with Asian ribs that I made."
