Recipe Notes

This is a GREAT way to use leftover rice! Either white or brown is fine. No one will condemn you for using white :-) I have an herb garden with all of the herbs I love for this dish: dill, oregano, and parsley. You can add in or substitute thyme, basil, and rosemary. I use So Delicious Dairy-Free Unflavored Creamer, but you can use half n' half if you prefer. We limit dairy...
