"Wow! This was so easy to make, and we found it to be a delicious lunch all by itself. I made 2 adjustments, which I highly recommend. Instead of long grain white rice I used basmati rice, and in place of the apricots or raisins I used fresh organic blueberries. Thanks for this wonderful recipe, and a delicious, nutritious lunch!"
