Made this tonight and it was absolutely delicious. It’s going to become a regular in our house. Served it with salmon. So good! Donna John Dieter Schmitz
this is a really good addition to a Greek dish! We ended up cooking the rice for a bit longer as it was still wet - no big deal as it was worth the wait. Highly recommended!
