"You’ll be amazed at how far this recipe stretches just a little bit of rice, and packs in a big punch of zucchini flavor. It’s like risotto without all the stirring, so what’s not to love? If you don’t have parboiled rice, parboil regular rice for approx. 8 - 10 min. before adding it to the recipe."
