      Nice and different. I could think of few things to add, maybe some cardamom, currants, etc???

      Delicious rice. Went well with a roast pork loin. None of the spices or citrus are overpowering, but blend well. The pistachios are a nice touch and add some texture. Will be making this one again!

      This is a real 5 star winner. I didn't have fresh oranges for the zest so I gave it an added dose of oj. I could have doubled the cinnamon but I'm a "bark-head" and DH enjoyed it made as ask. The spicing is quite mild and should be loved by the kids as well as the adults in the family. It's so easy to get it started and then you can just forget it while to tend to the rest of the meal. I can't believe that I'm the first to review this one. I shouldn't be the last because this recipe deserves a following.
