    Well, I just made my version of this recipe using the ingredients I had on hand.
    For the rice, I only had basmati on hand, so that’s what I used. For the vegetables I had frozen whats called “california style”, which is cauliflower florets, broccoli cuts, crinkle cut carrots and diced red peppers, and for the garlic, I didn’t have any fresh, so I used almost a teaspoon of crushed garlic in oil. Almost the same as Jenny’s recipe, but not quite and it turned out fantastic. Just a great recipe Jenny. Thank you!
