We really enjoyed the addition of toasted pine nuts and raisins for a very nice savory flavor. It was a great side dish with baked tilapia.

I make this rice using cashewnuts as a substitute for pine nuts because my family isn't too big on the latter nor am I;) Also, I use 1/2 cup more of water. This is a wonderful rice, very tasty and such a savory delight!
