    I love this rice with the orzo - so simple, but unbeatable flavor. I never would have thought that was all there was to it. Obviously the browning in the clarified butter really kicks up the taste. I can't wait to try this at home, since I've loved it for so long in the restaurants I go to!

    Sounds like a great improvement over plain rice. I will make it.
    I enjoy Minnesota wild rice mixed into rice dishes such as chicken rice soup, and so on.

    I forgot to put the saffron in while it was cooking so I sprinkled on some turmeric at the end to yellow it up some. You can see a picture of the rice plated along with some baked stuffed eggplant and zucchini on your baked stuffed eggplant recipe page.

    I'm so glad that you stopped to take a look at the Muhammara... now I've got a whole new cache of recipes to try out!

    I've been looking for something a little bit different to do with the eggplant on the salad. I'm looking forward to doing this soon! Great job, Jim!

    Thanks Jim. This sounds simple and delicious. Brown butter and nuts? That would make anything taste good wouldn't it?

    We love this recipe! I use chicken broth in place of the water, so will have to try your version. Thank you for the reminder, I haven't made this in a while.
