Loved this rice. Full meal with salad and mashed potatoes, meat and two vegetables and only had two cups left for my lunch next day. They loved it.

This sounded good and is different BUT I would use 1 box of rice and a full recipe of all ingredients or at least play around with it. There was so much rice. I made half the recipe and it definitely serve more than 5.
