San Francisco Rice

READY IN: 50mins
Top Tweak by Carrie Ann

A very flavourful rice dish that tastes much like Rice-a-Roni but with a fresher taste. I did make some changes; I reduced the amount of mustard, salt and pepper,and substituted chicken stock for the water.I think this would be even better with the addition of mushrooms or toasted slivered almonds.
