Made this to serve as a side to recipe#364352 and you are right, taste like the rice we enjoyed while traveling through Peru and brought back wonderful memories. The only thing I did different was use chicken stock instead of plain water.

Thank you for sharing this lovely rice. My very picky dh loved it. A lovely rice with subtle garlic and lemon flavors. It was perfect served with the bbq pork and carrotes. Complimented the main dish perfectly. It was quick and easy to make. I will make this again. :)

Nice taste - just a little different from regular rice. Thanks for sharing.
