I like the plain version if i have something with a lot of spice or flavor accompanying however I do add a tad salt. . The hubby however was not a fan of brown rice until i used vegetable broth (Trader Joes) and added a cube of frozen garlic.

This is a solid recipe. It is used to make plain rice. If you want other flavors in your rice, you must add them... however I needed plain rice to go under gumbo to complement, not add to the flavor of the gumbo

I followed this recipe exactly! This recipe is awful unless you think canned broth flavored rice is a delicacy. I will never make this again and suggest that anyone reading my review will follow suit. I would have given it zero stars if possible.
