We did enjoy this recipe but the 2nd time I made a few changes which we felt made it even better. Since my family isnt fond of celery I only used 1 cup. I then added a package of frozen green peas for color and taste and also 2 beaten eggs which seemed to make it more moist. I took it to a church supper and none was left to take home!

This rice was pretty easy to make. I made this for OAMC. Only change I made was leaving out the mushrooms. It's like stuffing, but it's rice! I think that there is too much poultry seasoning and parsley in this. They totally overwhelm the other flavors. With that said, I would make this again, because it makes a great side dish, I would just use a lot less parsley, maybe 1 tablespoon or even less, and only 1 teaspoon of poultry seasoning. Thanks for the recipe!
