This is a FANTASTIC recipe I had made for the first time on the 27th of last month:) Not a single grain of this remained. My picky brother made sure this becomes a regular on our table(It's another thing that I'm cheating on his orders), lol.. I did substitute the chicken stock with 'Maggi vegetable broth with onions' that I prepared by dissolving 2 cubes of the same in 4 cups of water and brought it to boil, then used as stated in the recipe. I did not have cilantro or parsley at home, unfortunately, so I used fresh corriander leaves and fresh celery instead. I used oregano(dried) for marjoram(as when I clicked on "marjoram", Zaar said that it's actually oregano! I was thrilled to read that because I had oregano on hand). My house was smelling of garlic from one end to the other, and mmm, boy it smelt incredible! I did not use any salt(as broth contains salt already) or pepper. This rice "has to" be served "hot" to be enjoyed best. I "loved" the taste of the garlic and oregano the most in this. "It is a meal on its own and a great one at that" is what my family and our guests commented.

I can't believe I haven't reviewed this yet! I have made this a a couple times. I made two double batches both times for a big crowd. I love the flavor. I always do a bit less garlic and a lot more lime juice. We use this for our cafe rio copycat salads. The recipe is a bit time consuming with all the fresh herbs to cut, but it sure tastes great. Thanks for a tasty recipe.

Delicious rice! I used basmati and loved the combination of all of the fresh herbs. I did have to use dried marjoram, however since I couldn't find fresh. The lime zest adds a nice zing to this. Thanks for another winner, Bev.
