The amount of rice took a lot more stock and time stirring then stated but I think that's because I added it too fast. I tried it before adding the cheese and it was very yummy. I then added 50g soft cheese rather than goats cheese and it was so rich I couldn't eat it but I will be making this again without the cheese, which was my own fault x - 10 Jun 2015


Very tasty. Used red and yellow peppers instead of green, made a double portion. Sweet but not sickly so. - 24 Apr 2015
