    Inge 1505's Note:

    Quick and simple, this is nice with any fried meat or fish. Serve something green like salad, green beans or peas alongside for a nice contrast of colors. NOTE: Edited version for improved rice-water-ratio.

      I had to mess around with this because I had already dumped some rice in some water for another recipe (then realized I was missing an ingredient) so the amount of water I used might not have been right. I was also almost out of garlic so I only had one clove for a double batch. I used fresh tomatoes and dried basil. This was so good and easy, I am sure I will make it often! (Originally reviewed 4/8/10) Update: I made this again following the directions and think it does not have enough water as written. Some of the rice was not quite cooked. I would use 1 1/2 c. of water next time.

      I really enjoyed it! Awesome recipe. The only thing I would say is that I had to add more water during the cooking process. Also, steemed spinich was a great extra for it! Thanks again!
