I will try again only because I liked the taste. The rice did not cook to a creamy texture. It was chewy.

If you can cook, you can review and rate any recipe just as you do every book you decide to read or not. As a cancer survivor, I would not use any sugar substitute except for natural ones. Looks real good with just a little regular sugar.

I'm with anyone who looks at this and says, " No!".There are many recipes that are diet friendly health and weight wise that are delicious. I know this is, but not low in calories. Personally I use small amounts of sugar, not sugar substitute, which is unhealthy and tastes bad.

Easy and delicious! And to "vieux" and "amweikert" - how can you rate something that you haven't even tried??? Amweikert - if a recipe has too many carbs, then don't make it...geez! You can't "review and rate" if you haven't made it.
