    Chef Kate's Note:

    Serve this pretty mixture of white rice studded with vibrant green, pale green, black and red either hot or cold. It goes very well with seafood. From "The Moroccan Collection: Traditional Flavors from Northern Africa" by Hilaire Walden.

      This recipe made it into book#234156! OUTSTANDING! What an excellent rice dish. I made it as a side, but could quite contentedly eat this as my main course. It is almost silky in texture..perfection. Plus, the combination of avocadoes, tomato and black olives is to die for. Fantastic recipe. Thank you!!

      Very good rice dish. The avocado makes it almost creamy in texture as it melts into the rice. I followed the recipe closely (other than doubling the garlic and tomatoes). I was also forced to use dried parsley rather than fresh. Very taste side dish to Oaxacan Grilled Shrimp and #16719. Will make this one again.

      Wonderful, pretty and easy to make rice! I followed the recipe exactly but only used 1T of oil. I really loved the avocado in it. If I make this again I will sub cilantro in place of the parsley.
