    First batch got so burned that it ruined my pot. Second batch was thrown together quickly, added extra water and opened the lid to check on it a few times - turned out fine. Reheats really well

    Amazing recipe! I think we'll be coming back to this one over and over again! My husband especially liked how fresh the zucchini made the rice feel... almost guilt free ;)

    Pretty good. Used quinoa instead of rice and halved the recipe. it was a lot of zucchini when i halved it so might want to do three quarters or half in that case.

    I made this dish today. I added a large diced onion, a little extra water and chicken bouillon cubes. It was delicious. Will make this again.

    This dish was a hit. I added parsley flakes and seasoned salt to flavor the dish. I didn't use regular salt at all. This is a good intro to those who haven't tried zucchini before.

    This one was a bust for me. It has a VERY strong zucchini flavor and I did not care for the texture either so I ended up throwing it out. I'll be finding a different way to use up my excess zucchini in the future.

    Substituted quinoa, chicken broth and reduced the cheddar. Added two tbsp of cream cheese and this is easily one of my favorite sides!

    This came out so perfect & we all LOVED it! 😍 (I recommend squeezing the excess water out of the zucchini so your rice won't be so mushy)

    Great flavor. Rice wasn't soft enough and I think it's because I used 1/3 brown rice and didn't soften it like I usually do because I thought I could sauté it soft instead. Live and learn. I'll try again!
