Broccoli Brown Rice Pilaf

This is one of my favorite low-fat dishes—it's delicious! Rosemary, garlic, almonds and sunflower kernels flavor the broccoli and rice. Sometimes I add cooked cubed chicken for a complete meal. —Mari Condit of Brooklyn Center, Minnesota

    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.
