Reviews for Rice with Summer Squash
"Delicious!! Great flavor. Will make again.I would say more, but for some reason, whatever I add, it says I am using inappropriate language. ?? very weird...."
"I liked the idea of using vegetables with the rice. I omitted the carrots (because I didn't have any), but added petite diced tomatoes. I also used brown rice for a healthier alternative. The whole family liked it."
"My family loved this dish even though summer squash not a favorite. I added garlic and sautéed the carrots and onion in a out 1 tbs of olive oil and butter. I added more and chicken broth because everyone loves rice. Would definitely make this again."
"Just wondering if this would have been healthier to have cooked with brown rice and water rather than white rice and chicken broth . . . . Very tasty."
"My family loves this recipe. It's simple and easy to make. Like others said, I substitute brown rice and I also add a little bit of garlic."
