Yum. Just made this since I'm trying to cut potatoes Out of my diet. Instead of milk I used 1 cup chicken broth and 1/2 cup cream. It was so yummy. Used a little more broth to thin them out in the blender.

I made this last night for our Valentine's dinner. I was looking for a healthier (low carb) alternative to potatoes or pasta. It was FABULOUS! It was rich and creamy...would never have guessed it only had 1 tablespoon of butter. I am not sure what role the rice plays...I am tempted to try it without although it only adds about 10 grams of carbs to the total recipe. I will definitely make this again!
