      Yummy and Different! I've never cooked with seaweed before...mine kinda turned into a gelled glob but it still tasted good and mixed well with the rice. I guess that's where agar agar comes from. I used short-grain brown rice which I felt went better with this recipe and Splenda in place of the honey. Freddy Cat says it was nice visiting you again Sharon! Made for the Zaar tag game.
