This rice dish is absolutely delicious, I have made it quite a few times and my family just goes wild over it! Prep time does not include pre-boiling the long grain and wild rice. I have even added in chopped jalapenos. If you cannot find uncooked long grain and wild rice use two (250 gram each) packages Uncle Ben's Bistro Express Long Grain and Wild rice with Fine Herbs, it is already precooked, do not preheat the package of rice just add to the recipe as directed. This complete recipe can be doubled, use three packages of the precooked rice for this, not four if you are doubling the recipe.
