I also added onion. I bought a "whole grain 5" rice blend that was a blend of brown, red, wild rices and other grains and cooked it in a broth before adding it to the veggies. You can use a can of vegetable broth or chicken broth. Also added some freshly ground pepper & a dash of Mediterranean sea salt. The rice blend takes about 35 min. to cook, so give yourself a little extra prep time.

Excellent recipe!! I change it up some by adding more fresh vegetables (squash, onions and sometimes banana peppers if they are fresh).

Love this recipe! I get so excited every summer for the zucchinis to get ready so I can make this. It's great on the second day too. I add some salt and sometimes omit the bell pepper. Yum!

The recipe was good I thought. the rest of my family thought different. I was the only one that ate it. one serving and the rest got thrown away. Next time, I am going to omit the zucchini and see if it is liked by the masses.
