  1. Great & tasty rice. There's abit of a process from start to finish but worth the effort. Nice vegys & right proportions of ingredients. Only changes I made was that I soaked the cranberries in hot water before chopping & didn't add the nuts due to personal preference. Served with pork tenderloin w/mango chutney and complimented the flavours nicely, thanks for sharing.
  2. At first bite I was disappointed because I thought this pilaf was bland. UNTIL - I added salt. Then BAM! - the flavors came out and it was delicious. Thanks for sharing.
  3. This was very yummy. I did have to cook the rice mixture an additional 20 minutes till done. Made as posted. We enjoyed the added flavor of the cranberries. Thanks for posting. :) I served it with recipe #290743 for a very tasty dinner.
  4. Delicious! I made this last night and it was a huge hit. I left out the mushrooms and used jasmine rice for the long grain white rice, and it turned out to be terrific. I'll definitely be making this again!
  5. I too served this with duck w/orange sauce as well as roasted asperagus. Nutty, fruity and earthy tastes make this a nice combination.
