This is my own concoction, something I threw together when I needed something quick and a little different. To my surprise I found it was quite tasty! Sometimes I use white rice, sometimes brown, or even wild. And I may use pine nuts or slivered almonds--maybe even chopped pecans or walnuts. It's fun to experiment with this dish and it always comes out delicious!
