This rice is simple but good. I felt it could have used a tiny bit more flavor, but with the addition of lots of pepper, this was thoroughly enjoyed by yours truly :) I had to use steamed cashews instead of pine nuts as I couldnt get pine nuts at the local grocer... but that wouldnt have made a huge difference. Next time I may add a few strands of saffron for a stronger color :) Thank you for this recipe!
