Top Review by magpie diner

I made this tonight, and all in all, it turned out well...however I had to adjust to make it work. It seemed like an awful lot of water for that much rice. As another reviewer said, more like 2 1/2 makes sense, otherwise it would have been mushy. I doubled the recipe and used 6 cups of veggie stock. I felt it was still going to be too soggy, so I added about 1/2 a cup of pearl barley. I also found the first direction a bit confusing, especially if you're new to cooking rice. I sauteed the onion (with garlic) and celery (in olive oil), then added the mushrooms and herbs, let that saute a bit before adding the rice and finally the stock. Flavour was good - all depending on your stock, you may need to add salt and/or pepper. Thanks Dancer...!
