See moree, I am gonna do 1/4 cup next time). I followed the rest of the recipe and when I got to the rice it seemed like a little, so I used a cup (which seemed to make the perfect amount for me and my family).

I followed the directions with the following exceptions: used fresh spinach and 1 large onion; I used 2 CUP..."

After reducing the liquid in step two I do not add any more water, just pour the..." See more rice right in. I put in a whole cup of rice instead of just half. This is wonderful with feta cheese. Next time will try with lemon too. Served with homemade pita chips and hummus. Delish!"
