A savory side dish! The rice soaks overnight.

Top Review by Bottle Washer

Very nice simple flavors. The pecans really make this dish. I did use olive oil rather than the butter to keep things healthy. Next time I'll add a bit more water as it did not quite make the 1 hour cooking time before cooking off. WIll certainly keep this one.
