For those of you who cook for one, this recipe reduces easily and nicely to serve just one. Rather than opening a new container of broth, I used water and part of a bouillon cube. And I did add some chopped fresh parsley which I thought made it look more appealing. This rice went beautifully with my favorite salmon, Baked Salmon. Thank you!
Great rice dish i added some garlic to the recipe and turned out well! TY TGirl
Absolutely wonderful. I made this to go along with Roasted Halibut with Tomato Cream Sauce (Roasted Halibut With Tomato Cream Sauce) at the suggestion of several of the reviewers of that dish. It complimented the halibut very well and received rave reviews. I'll be making this again! Thanks!
