This was a quick, flavorful and fun side dish that would be equally delicious with Asian fare or on Fish or Shrimp Tacos.

  1. Judee from Gluten Free A-Z Blog: I love this rice recipe. It will be something different for the summer. I tried to type in my website and name but it just kept coming up anonymous!

    1. I don't know why it does that to some people and not others Judee. Thanks for stopping by.

    2. It could be she's using Safari. Google and Apple don't play nice sometimes, lol.

  2. I love that rice blend! Can't wait for the chicken recipe!
