Good use for leftover rice. I had about 1 -1/2 cups of a mixture of leftover brown jasmine and wild rice. Skip the vegetable broth. Added celery. Seasoned with red pepper flakes and Emeril's essence instead of ground cayenne and worcestershire. It was plenty spicy and flavorful. I will try lima beans next time. My non-vegetarian husband who considers meatless meals an affront, absolutely loved this dish. I enjoyed the variety of textures, especially with the celery added.
