MY REVIEW
Reviewed Oct. 10, 2009

This is a good, light side dish. However, I used fresh mint leaves and it didn't taste minty enough for me. Guess, I'll follow the recipe next time, although I think I'll still increase the amt. I really appreciate Ann explaining her rationale for cooking the rice this way, and will remember her tip when I make other rice recipes. With the other 2 recipes in the "Editor's Meal", this is a standout meal.
