      Other than using sprouted brown rice, I made as directed except I used parsley instead of cilantro because it's what I had on hand. Very good! Thanks Peggy! Made for PAC, spring 2014.

      This is an interesting way to prepare rice. Some unadventurous eaters might turn their nose up at it, which happened when we served it, but overall the mix of flavours is quite interesting.

      This was wonderful. It was a great side dish to go along with steak. We did leave the jalapeno out for tonight's dinner because one of our guests has issues with spicy stuff. But, next time I make it, I'll definitely use the jalapeno as we love spicy! Thanks, Peggy for a great recipe.
