In Minneapolis, Minnesota, Mary Ann Kosmas cooks up this light and lemony rice dish flecked with pretty carrot shreds. "I have an herb garden, so I prepare this with fresh rosemary in summer," she jots. "The aroma is heavenly."

I substituted reduced-sodium chicken broth for the rich chicken stock that was originally called for in this recipe. It's a great side dish to serve with grilled fish or chicken for a tasty low-fat meal.
