This was a tasty different way to make rice. We love rice at our house and I am always looking for a different way to prepare it. I will make it again for sure, but may add some toasted pine nuts or toasted slivered almonds to jazz it up some. Maybe a few chopped gr. onions thrown in at the end for a little color.
This is a very tasty way to serve rice. I added 1/4 cup of blanched almonds when I sauteed the garlic and they added a very nice cruchy texture. Also, I served our chicken kabobs (marinated in Sun dried tomato dressing) on top of the rice and the flavors complimented eachother very well. Thanks Dancer for a wonderful dish!
This was a great recipe! Simple and delicious! Made it sun dried tomato chicken breasts and salad. Made for a perfect meal.
