      Quick and easy!! This delicious rice dish will go well as a side dish with any entree! It's a winner for sure! Prepared as a participant in the Hail To The Chefs Event January 2010 in the Cooking Photo Forum.

      Such a tasty number, the perfect side dish for Soy and Ginger Fish which I made for the *Food Network Chefs* photo forum January challenge. I didn't have any of the fresh herbs, but we liked it anyway. I used about a quarter of a white onion instead of the scallions, and I really liked the pungency of the onion in there.

      Such an easy dish that I can certainly see myself making this recipe a lot, so thank you, Linda. :) I used chicken stock instead of water. The flavour from the herbs and the chicken stock made this just so delicious and it would be a great accompaniment to vegetarian or meat dishes. On this occasion, we enjoyed it with Baked Caramelized Parmesan Tomatoes and Bacon Wrapped Brussels Sprouts - but for the bacon, a nearly vegetarian meal. Made for 1-2-3 Hit Wonders.
