I enjoyed this very much. Comfort food! I disagree with the other reviewer. I found it full of flavor. Between the garlic, ginger, basil and mint it was full of flavor. The only changes I did was using brown rice in which that led me to use 3 cups of chicken broth. I did heat olive oil adding ginger and garlic stirred in the rice. Then I added the herbs and pepper. Transfered all to my rice cooker with the broth and let it do it`s thing. Thanks Barb!
