    Just noticed that the directions call for browning the rice in oil, but the list of directions doesn't include oil.

    If you are looking for a low fat dish, maybe cooking spray would work to brown the rice and saute the onions.

    I definitely plan to try this recipe!

  2. thanks for catching that! I just put in 1 TBS of olive oil. I made this already once, it is so easy to make and came out great! try it!
