    This is an excellent side dish, especially for the summer. It's goes perfectly with lots of grilled dishes. The only change I make is that I skip the nuts. Otherwise, I don't change a thing.

    I made it without nuts of any kind. It was alright. More interesting than regular rice. I wasn't as impressed as the rest of the reviewers.

    We really love this recipe. Recently served it with Broiled Herb-Marinated Shrimp Skewers (CL 3/11) and it was an excellent combo. It is my go-to side dish!

    This recipe was outstanding and I am always looking for an reason to make it. Long gone are the days of boring plain white rice.

    I used vegetable broth and brown basmati rice (which required much more cooking time) and skipped the nuts. Didn't miss them at all! Served with Lemon-Garlic Shrimp Skewers and Creamy Ham Casserole. Simple and delicious side dish!

    This was super good. I used jasmine rice and didn't roast the pine nuts. Tasted really good!

    I absolutely love this rice recipe! The fresh herbs give it such a beautiful aroma, in addition to great flavors. It is the perfect accompaniment to so many entrees, but I would probably not serve it with something highly seasoned or really spicy, as the flavors are on the delicate side.

    Just adding my voice to the choir of praise. This is WONDERFUL. Wow....My only change was to use sliced almonds because I had run out of pine nuts. Served this with the orange marmalade salmon and steamed green beans.

    I just made this for the 3rd time and we really enjoy this rice. This time i skipped the pine nuts and water and just used a 14.5 oz can of chicken broth and it was perfect. Served it with Indian-Style Marinated Chicken and it was a perfect side dish.
