Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil; swirl to coat. Add onion; sauté 5 minutes or until tender. Place onion in a large bowl.
Cook rice in a large pot of boiling water 5 minutes. Drain.
Stir rice and next 5 ingredients (through allspice) into onions. Spoon onion mixture into an 8-inch square glass or ceramic baking dish coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle evenly with Parmesan cheese. Cover and bake at 325° for 40 minutes. Uncover and bake an additional 5 minutes. Top with parsley, if desired.
This was outstanding. My rating is based on the results I achieved from following others' tip to caramelize the onions first. I really think that is the key to getting the wonderful flavor of the finished product. I used brown instant rice and therefore didn't pre-cook. Perfection!
This was very good, but strange. My husband really liked it. I couldn't decide. I think when I make it again. I will omit the allspice. It gave it an almost-dessert taste, reminded me of rice pudding, which was odd for a side dish. Other than that it was yummy.
I don't even like onions that much, but I loved this casserole. I definitely cooked the onions longer than the rocommended 5 minutes, more like 13minutes! But they got super sweet. As I didn't have allspice on hand, I omitted it. The portion size is very generous, I easily got 8 servings out of the recipe. Served with a roasted chicken breast and some broccoli. Excellent!
Served this with balsamic glazed pork chops and roasted asparagus with lemon and Parmesan. Used a Seeds of Change basmati brown rice bag (uncooked) to save a step. Did caramelize the onions a bit. Nice taste...Maybe thyme instead of allspice?
Very good. I think it might have been missing something--or maybe I might consider replacing the allspice with something else. But everyone had good things to say and there is none of it left! It was more work than I really wanted to do for one side dish, though.
Turned out well. Directions are a little odd, and you dirty a lot of pans for this, but it was yummy. Didnt have allspice, sub'd a pinch of nutmeg. Used vidalia onions. Used pecorino romano instead of parm. Broiling a few min at the end made it look appetizing, but tasted a little dried out and hard to eat/serve. Served with Pork loin chops with cider pan sauce and apples (All You). Paired nicely.
