Reviews for Jasmine Rice & Quinoa Pilaf
"Excellent recipe. Left out broccoli because of allergy so added extra carrot. Otherwise made as written-YUM. Easily 5 star and will make again. Thanks for the great recipe."
"I doubled the recipe and added some cooked chicken and egg at the end to make it more of a stir-fry. My mother raved about it and begged me to give her the recipe!"
