Wow, what a different recipe!  The flavors were really bright but warm.  I liked it a lot but because it is kind of an unusual dish I could see someone's taste buds not knowing what to think of it.  For example, my husband's clear as mud opinion was, "'s kinda good and kinda weird."  Then again he doesn't like spinach or cilantro... so I guess I didn't really make it for him  >:D I ended up adding another 1/2 cup water to the rice as it was cooking.  I'll make it again for myself!
