      This was a nice rice. I burned it a little in the beginning with too high a heat. It probably could have used a bit more liquid, but I didn't think to do that! Also, my mint was last of the season, and there was a funny taste. Not sure if it was because it was burnt, or the mint, but will try to make again. Thanks!

      This was really good. I had to add some additional liquid so I put in more coconut milk. The mint and cilantro went well together. Made for ZWT5.

      We really enjoyed this rice served with pork tenderloin. I used full fat coconut milk and cut the herb amount in half because I ran out of cilantro. I also added some more liquid after checking it at the 10 minute mark- It might have been because I used the full fat milk instead of light? The result was a nice side dish lightly flavored with coconut. Next time I'll be sure to use the full amount of the herbs because they were really good! Thanks from an Epicurean Queen. ZWT 5!
