Ooooh, so creamy and good. Ooooh, so fattening. Had to change this one up and delete some calories or spend an extra hour running. I love to run, but I didn't/don't have the extra hour. ENJOY! Inspired by homecooking -- perfected on eatbetteramerica.com I hour of prep time includes the time to cook the rice (longer than white rice) I cook it the night before and leave it covered in the fridge to make cooking easier the next night!
