The presentation and taste of this rice are unmatched! However, I did require 2 1/2 cups more of vegetable stock. I substituted the white vinegar with the juice of half a lemon. This made a fantastic lunch(a meal in itself)! Will serve this at my next lunch party. Thanks!

Great rice recipe! I will make this many times again. I added a little more vinegar as I went, otherwise made it exactly as directed. Served it for company with Jerk Pork Tenderloin (store-bought marinade), mango salsa, and a green salad. Low-fat AND delicious! Hooray!

Yeeah Mon! This is a great dish with terrific flavor depth. You'll find it easy enough to make it on a week night after work. The health factor is wonderful too. Everything works so well together that I wouldn't change a thing, I did however use tsp of dried coriander since I didn't have any fresh.
