      I loved the flavor of this dish, the spices and especially the unexpected taste of raisins and pine nuts. However, even though I used some large zucchini, it had turned to mush by the time the rice had cooked completely. I think that I will use cooked rice next time, and then only braise it until the zucchini are just tender, no longer than 25 minutes or so. I'll definitely try this one again because it's flavorful and easy to make.
