MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 9, 2011

I have been making this often since it first appeared in the magazine. I'm using brown rice now, for extra nutrition. It's a wonderful combination of flavors.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 13, 2011

This is one of my family's favorite sides. It's very easy. Sometimes I use long grain rice and I don't always have cilantro on hand but it's always yummy!
