    Outstanding! Made twice already using Basmati rice. Pine nuts add a nice bit of crunch but if there are any leftovers they will get soggy. Easy fix: sprinkle on individual servings before eating and for a huge savings swap out the pine nuts with toasted sunflower seeds. Just as tasty & much more affordable.
