  • “This was AWESOME! I made this for lunch this afternoon. We had a guest come over who said it was the best rice dish he’s had in ages! I felt very happy because he wanted to title it “Charishma’s Apple Pea Rice”. But, I told him, the credit goes to Casie completely:)Thank you, Casie, we all loved the rice. I did add a little soy sauce to my serving, but the others preferred it without the same. It tastes good with or without the soy sauce. I used 1 cup of brown rice and it made 4-6 servings. The apples in this gave this dish the main punch, I’d say, they added all the flavour in the world to this. I loved this rice, I’ll be making it very often or for a special party I’m planning soon:)Thanks a tonne!”

  • “I definitely felt healthy for eating so many fruits and veggies in one meal.I added some red bell pepper, left out the oil & used PAM, and used honey roasted peanuts because that’s what I had on hand (and thought the sweetness might add a nice little flavor).I have a sneaky feeling it will taste better tomorrow after all of the ingredients have a chance to happy together!Definitely worth making!”

  • “this was great! I added broccoli and onions byTurned out wonderful”

  • “Whensaw this recipe I thought – rice, carrots, snow peas and soy sauce – ok.But apples and peanuts? – I wasn’t too sure.I made as written and loved it.Perfect blend of textures and flavors.”

  • “We really enjoyed this. It definately needs the soy sauce. It really enhances the flavor. It was very easy & fast to put together. We will definately be having this often!”

  • “I thought this was terrific.It definitely needed a little sauce (which I made with soy sauce, vegetable broth, corn starch, water and fresh ginger) but was such an interesting dish.Thanks!”

  • “This was very interesting, nice textures, but even with soy sauce it was a bit bland for us.”

  • “Loved the fresh ingredient approach, as I try to cook primarily whole foods.Recipe made at least 3 “my-size” servings…and I am not a wimpy portioner + am 6 months pregnant! On the last serving, I also added the boiled egg as suggested by another chef, included a drizzle of honey and 1 tsp of sesame seeds to up the protein (and b/c I was tiring slightly of soy sauce — sweet and sour worked!). Good fresh twist, superblondie.”

  • “It was ok.It did have a lot of great texture, but needed some soy sauce or stir fry sauce.I used fresh basil (wasn’t sure if the recipe called for fresh or dried).”

  • “My friend and I made this one night when apples and peanuts were our “secret ingredients”.It was amazing.Even my friends picky husband loved it and has asked her to make it again.We both give it 5 stars…thanks for the great meal!”

  • “What a fun combination of flavors!This makes a beautiful and light meal that my whole family loved.I used sugar snap peas instead of snow peas, cut the carrots into matchsticks instead of slices, and used cashews instead of peanuts. The recipe doesn’t state whether the basil should be fresh or dried, and I used dried since I had it on hand.I added it a teaspoon at a time, and wound up using the entire tablespoon.It was delicious and I thank you, Casie, for introducing us this wonderful dish.”

  • “Easy to make, very tasty.Add some Red chili sauce to add some kick to it.”

  • “This is so yummy!!I made mine with water chestnuts and I added the rice to the pot at the end and tossed it for a “fried rice” dish.Yummy yummy!!Thank you Casie.”

  • “Excellent.I doubled the recipe for company (of 4 adults) and had a good portion of left overs. Oh well. I sent them home with our vegan guest who seemed excited about that.We had this stir fry with dried basil ( I didn’t have fresh)and pretty much “as is” with brown rice and some of us had soy sause and some not. Very good both ways. I’m craving it now. Delicious and filling. Good complex flavor. Easy. Crowd pleaser.Yum.”

  • “I really enjoyed this easy to make dish. I did not have snow peas so I just added more carrots, and as I was out of basil, I used cilantro. Thanks for the recipe.”

  • “very very good. it was a very nice blend of flavors, the sweet apple, salty peanuts, and whatever soy sauce is. they all complemented each other well. I stir fried it in water however, which works just as well and a lot less calories. I also used brocoli instead of snow peas and added a little freshly grated ginger! my mouth is happy right now.”

  • “Made this tonight to rave reviews — It was a fresh combination of crunchy sweet & salty with the apples & peanuts.Only change I made was to slice a hard boiled egg over the rice before putting on the veg… yum!Will definitely do again.”

  • “Perfect for a light dinner. I didn’t have any canola oil so used olive instead, but I think Peanut Oil may be a nice alternative also.”

  • “Thank you Casie!I am constantly looking for lower fat recipes for healthier eating…this one was absolutely scrumptious!Very unique flavor and makes a delicious light lunch or supper.”
