This is just wonderful! It adds so much flavor to regular old brown rice, and it's so easy to prepare. I followed the recipe exactly, and I wouldn't change a thing. It's perfect as it is. This would serve two easily...but I must admit that it's so good that I could eat the whole thing by myself. Thanks Brother William!
