Magnificent! So easy and the mint gave it that little something special. My kids really thought this was rice and ate a hearty portion each. I love this and will definitely be making it often. I did take pictures, but am having technical issues with my computer, so I will be back to upload them. Thank you so much Lori Mama! Made for I RECOMMED TAG GAME.

Great side dish with dinner tonight. Made this with one of my chicken recipes, and made this recipe as written with fresh mint, and cut down to 1 green onion. We all enjoyed it. Loved the mint flavor in this, and so easy to prepare/make. Made for Holiday Tag.
