AWESOME! Great flavor, good kick, not too much anything and a really good different way to make plain ol' rice. Works well with brown rice too--just up the liquids a bit and cook longer!
We didn't have much luck with this recipe; our rice was undercooked and crunchy. If we try again, I'd cover it while cooking or cook at a higher temperature.
Really good! Nice favor - a little kick, but not too much. It reminded me of a Moroccan dish. Based on what other reviewers said, I cut down the cumin to 1 tsp. and used equal parts oj and broth (1 cup each). I did need to cook it longer than the stated 20 minutes as the rice was still crunchy, even after the liquid was absorbed. Everyone who ate this dish really liked it. I'll make again.
Added a little more cayenne for the kick and 1/4 cup cilantro more, it just looked better. Absolutely wonderful. Great with ginger/teriyaki glazed salmon.
Delicious!! I used pulpy orange juice which was great. Fabulous combination of flavors! I have a gas stove so I needed to add a bit more broth. Will certainly make this again!
Absolutely loved this fresh tasting rice. Cilantro lovers, you will really like this one! Per previous reviewers suggestion I added 1 cup chicken broth and 1 cup orange juice. The flavors were perfect. The cayene makes it. Served with Chicken Kabobs Mexicana, a a great summer entertaining combo. Many thanks!
I left the spices and the cilanto out, but added a cube of chicken boulin. I just threw everyhing in my rice cooker (including the raw onion) and let it do it's thing. Came out nice and sticky and wonderful. Very tasty, will deffinetly make again. :)
Very flavorful and delicious. Even though I love cumin I did cut it back to 1 tsp, which I found to be plenty. Otherwise followed exactly and was very happy. Aromatic and yummy. I'll be making this again. My husband loved it too. Thanks for a new spin on a rice dish!
