      First I cut the recipe in half, used medium grain rice which was rinsed and allowed to drain and dry out overnight. A saute pan was heated to medium heat and the onion and celery together softened for a few minutes, then fresh garlic another minute. Added freshly roasted tomato sauce, fresh organic tomatoes, and chicken broth. Brought to the boil, covered and simmered for 20 minutes. After 20 minutes the pan was removed from the burner and the rice sat a further 10 minutes, covered. Plated then arranged fresh cilantro around the rice and fresh dill on top. Dried dill was used in cooking the rice and fresh for garnish and I would increase the dill to 1 1/2 teaspoons. I would also strongly recommend only fresh cilantro and not stir it into the rice but use it as garnish. Served with Cumin Meatballs (minus the tomato sauce) and simple roasted beets. Thanks for posting!

      Easily prepared and very tasty. I took note of Cookgirls comments, but pretty well followed the recipe as written, since my ingredients on hand worked better that way, however, I would have liked to have more fresh herbs available to use, I hadn't planned ahead for this one.
      We enjoyed this aromatic rice, which I served with Jans Butter Chicken. This was made for Think Pink, October 2011
