    This is a nice,easy side dish that tastes great. I love putting it in the oven along with something else that's baking such as roast chicken or meat loaf.

    Very, very good taste, I loved it! Maybe 1 1/2 cup of water the next time instead of 1 3/4 :)

    Appealing to the eye with a great taste. I used brown rice and it cooked just a tad longer. Made a double batch so I could have leftovers. It would be a great "base" for fried rice!!! I will definitely make this again. Thanks!

    LOVED this dish! I agree with another reviewer that said her 3 year old non-carrot-eater ate it. Both of my kids thought it was great! This is so easy! It took about 20 minutes longer than the suggested baking time, but certainly worth the wait for me.

    It took a little while to do the chopping, but this is a really great potluck-type dish. Tasty and easy!
