  • Made this like most others subbing brown rice for white and almond extract for liqueur, but may sub sesame oil for olive next time as well. Served with grilled shrimp it was delicious. - 5/3/12

  • Now that someone tried this with brown rice I will definitely give this a try tonite, in fact. I don't have white rice in the house since we started out lifestyle change with my weight problems & dh's diabetes & hi cholesterol. This sounds like a great way to liven up brown rice. Thanx so much! - 2/7/12
