I actually enjoyed the fact that this was quite mild and bland because we had it with cajun blackened salmon so I wanted to be able to taste the salmon and the spices on it. I found the celery and onions pleasantly crunchy and cooked it on a low heat so that the water would absorb more slowly - 10/7/09
