Loved it!Easy and quick to make. I used long grain basmati rice. To eat it with chopstix though I would suggest using short grain stickeir rice.

I have an Aunt who's a vegetarian and I made her this for Thanksgiving. Everyone tried it and LOVED it. It was simple to follow and it was very good.

This really was good. I was out of rice, but I did have orzo, so I used that.
Only things I would change is the amount of pepper -- just a smidge will do; and the amount of margarine.
If you are making this in a non-stick pan, as the recipe directs, I think you're fine with half that amount.
