MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jan. 20, 2011

Sorry, but we didn't enjoy this. The rice came out quite dry, and there was much too much of it in proportion to the other ingredients. It was pretty onion-y, and I also wasn't crazy about the canned soup taste--it was overwhelming, even though I had added some fresh thyme to the mix. I might try a variation of this, cutting the rice back to 2 1/2 cups or less, and maybe replacing some of the stock with wine for flavor.

Love this recipe, used without the mushroom soup but still was great. This is a good base recipe to add your own touch.
