I can't remember for the life of me where I got this recipe from...but it is one of my favorite side dishes. The flavors in this rice dish just tickle the tastebuds! :)
I did try it with brown rice and it's equally as good, of course you have to alter the broth or water and cooking time a little if you do that.
I have made this with a wild rice/white rice combo before too.
