Easy Pumpkin Rice

Easy Pumpkin Rice I made this as a fluke once because I needed to go shopping and these ingredients were all I had. My kids loved it; I did, too. Now it’s a family recipe that I cook from time to time. This is hearty, slightly-sweet, and a great holiday treat or an awesome side dish. Experiment adding other ingredients like pecans or raisins to make it your own.
