  • “Nice enough, but a little too greasy! 1/2 tablespoon of butter per serving is a little too much for a recipe that doesn’t have many veggies. I skipped the mushrooms and doubled the amount of green bell peppers and it gave the rice a nice flavour.”

  • “I did a lot of changes to this recipe, as I didn’t have the fresh stuff. I cooked it on the stove top (not the microwave).I used can mushrooms, also didn’t have green onions so I used brown onions.Doubled long grain rice and used chicken stock instead of water (doubled that also). I also didn’t have parsley so I left it out.Served it with ‘Recipe #136226’.Thank you for the Recipe”
