I like this recipe, and have used it for everything as side dish as well as a mainstay for supper. It is an easy, delicious entree for this time of year.

  • Great question. We have adjusted the recipe to read "cooked or minute rice" as regular rice will not cook in this short time period. Thanks for asking!
