      Most yummy. I love everything that goes into this so it was a sure win. It was actually made just as directed (for a change, lol). I'm already looking forward to making this again.

      Very nice pilaf enjoyed warm and also good cold. I used orange bell peppers, white Basmati rice which I rinsed and soaked somewhat, dried mint, plus the rest of the ingredients. Served with Easy Low Fat Cacik (Garlic Yogurt Dip) for a tasty lunch. Made for - September's Tag Game ~ Las Gambas ~ Shrimp%u200F
