    Yum! Easy but impressive at the same time. I used white instead of brown rice, but followed the recipe except for that. This would also make a great main dish for vegetarians- using vegetable stock. Thanks!

    This is stellar! I made it tonight for a potluck at work tomorrow, and I just know it'll be a hit. I doubled the recipe except for the onions and butter, and I used half cranberries and half golden raisins. When I mixed it all together at the end, my bouillon cubes that I used in place of broth had made it a little too salty, so I cooked up a little bit of basmati rice and mixed that in to balance it out. This is the perfect blend of sweet and savory. Thanks for posting, chia--I'll be making this one often!

    I made this as a side dish for New Year's Eve. I'm not a big fan of onions, so I used 1/2 of one large onion and omitted the pecans (since I burned them when toasting!). I made the rices in a rice cooker and the rest in a cast iron skillet. Both me and my boyfriend really enjoyed it. Different and tasty.

    This was excellent. I added quite a bit more orange zest then the recipe called for as I was looking for more of a orangey zip. I prepared this in advance (early in the day) and reheated it slightly in the microwave just before service. I will definitely make this again. Thanks Chia.

    The slightly-shortened cooking time leaves the rice pleasantly crunchy -- a nice touch! I didn't see any indication as to when to add the zest, so I put it in the with the onions after I'd had them cooking for a while. I used veggie broth to make the recipe vegetarian friendly. This is delicious!
