      This was really good and quite easy. I just put everything together and had time to prepare some roasted asparagus, a salad, and a steak to go with it. I made it as written except I used fresh tomatoes and green frying peppers. Very nice and healthy side dish.

      Wonderful flavor, colorful and such a healthy way to get your whole grain. The ratio of liquid to grain and the timing was just right. We thought the green onions were the perfect topper.

      This is a truly excellent pilaf. I used frozen peppers so there was a little extra liquid (and I forgot to drain the tomatoes at the beginning..) so I just used 2 cups of stock. I did use chicken as I am not a vegetarian and happened to be out of veggie stock. I didn't have any mint or green onions. BUT I really think those were minor issues. This pilaf had wonderful flavor and texture. Mine was done a little shy of the 55 minutes listed so check a bit early. Really great. Thanks!
