A fun and tasty alternative to potatoes, this savory rice is a popular side dish at gatherings. I especially like its mild soy sauce flavor and flecks of green onion and toasted slivered almonds. -Annette Rodgers, Rosston, Arkansas

"The water quantity on this cannot be right - 16 cups of water. I had to drain some of the water off, definitely not done in 15 min. Some help would be nice"

"This has been a family favorite for the past 10 years! It is a great side dish to go along with the pineapple pepper chicken on this site. Great for feeding a large party. We love it!"

"I've been making this for about ten years now and I think it's delicious and wouldn't change a thing. It goes especially well as a side with the grilled pork chops recipe on this site that has soy sauce, lemon juice and brown sugar, etc. in the marinade."
