Very quick prep and quite tasty. I used sundried tomatoes in oil pulled from the jar with a fork so there was plenty of oil left on them. This seemed to address some of the dryness issues folks mentioned.

I was looking for a quick and easy to prepare basmati rice tonight and tried this recipe. This was really good. Great flavour and so easy to make with ingredients that are commonly on hand. I needed to add just a little more broth near the end to fully cook the rice. Delicious. Will definately be making this again!

We really enjoyed this recipe. It had a lot of the flavors we were looking for. This was a bit on the dry side adding more liquid would be great. Nothing was jumping out at us. Overall a good side dish. Thanks for posting. :)
