Robin's Rice

“This is one of my favorite side dish recipes because it is quite versatile: Brown rice can be substituted for white rice, leeks or celery for the onion, walnuts for almonds, and beef for chicken broth to suit your taste or what you happen to have on hand.â€� —Robin Heflin, Camano, WA
