I got a small bunch of sorrel at the farmers market this weekend and decided to use it in this recipe. We loved the flavor of this dish and will definitely make it again. It went very well with grilled fish. I made the recipe on the stove top instead of the rice cooker. Thanks for posting it, Rita!
