Made this for the Aussie/NZ Recipe Swap #81 and this was a hit. I used fresh mushrooms (that is what I had) and added a small clove of minced garlic but otherwise followed the instructions.. This was a delicious rice dish! Served with recipe#305221#305221 and broccoli. Thank you for posting and I know we will have this again.

halved this, and didnt add the water chestnuts, (picked up a can of bean sprouts by accident) Used dried French onion soup and water, as we just dont have canned onion soup. Used fresh mushrooms, and threw in a cup of frozen peas towards the end, (to make up for the chestnuts :)
easy and tasty. Made for Aussie swap oct 2011

I didn't want to use canned onion soup, so used onion soup mix with water and it worked great! I also used fresh mushrooms. My husband enjoyed it too! Thanks! Made for the Australian Swap-Nov. 2009.
