Here is a rice dish that is a little bit different. I got this recipe from Woman's World magazine. I haven't tried it yet but it sounds really good.

With all the onions, and hebs, etc, I'd expected more flavorful rice. This was kinda plain - tasted fine, but wasn't worth the extra effort. Sorry, Diane
