I agree, this was really good. What I loved most about it, is how easy it is - most of it thrown together in the beginning, so don't be scared off by the list of ingredients, it only takes a few minutes to get this on the stove. I also really loved the thyme, it complimented the fruity flavours beautifully. Thanks Mike, I like this fancy rice! Made for Veg Swap 16 - Nov09
