"Just finished dinner after preparing this one. It was delish. A definite do-over. (I left out the cumin since I'm not a fan, but the combination of everything else was a hit.)"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 20, 2011

"My husband and I really liked this recipe! I'm not a huge fan of parsley, but it cooks up wonderfully in this recipe and it didn't have a bitter taste at all. I did make one small change. I don't care for the texture and appearance of instant rice so I used jasmine. It took a little longer to make, but was still really easy. Will definitely make this one again!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 1, 2011

"I omitted the grapes, because I didn't think we would care for the combination. When I went to add the rice at the end, it seemed like too much, so I didn't add all of it (all but maybe a cup or so of the cooked rice). It had a unique flavor. I really enjoyed this dish!"
