    EdsGirlAngie's Note:

    Another EdsGirl creation from La Cocina Angie! Beautiful golden rice is seasoned with garlic, sherry, saffron, and - a touch of almond extract. It's so delicious, and at it's best with a light vegetarian, seafood or chicken entree.

      This just sounded absolutely delish and I HAD to make this! Sadly I didn't have any saffron so i substituted Tumeric (let me tell you. .not a bad sub!) and I didn't have any almond slivers but I had whole roasted almonds. This was so delish! I can't wait to make this again with all the correct ingredients on hand! I served this with baked teriyaki chicken and broccoli! What a great meal!

      Yum, this was really great served along with some seafood! The only change I made was to use untoasted almond slivers but only because I forgot to toast them earlier. I agree the aroma while cooking is great.
