MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 25, 2013

I have a family of 7 with 5 kids aged 23-14 so I usually have to double all recipes. In doubling it, I had only 2 bunches of green onions, so I added a large chopped onion. I also left out the cayenne. It was delicious. I am making it again tonight. I have decided also that in the near future I will make a very large batch of this and freeze for quick meals. Another thing I thought about doing is adding boneless chicken to the recipe for a one-dish meal. I will let you know how it turns out! Thanks!

We enjoyed this. I did substitute dried parsley and cut back slightly on the cayenne which still gave the rice a bit of a kick! It's a nice side dish.
