It tasted really good. I used leftover brown rice so I added a little more sugar. I will definitely make this again - it is such a yummy, filling dish warm or cold.
This recipes tastes great hot or cold. I made this for our local food pantry recipients and a couple of the people said it tasted just like a recipe they had tasted as children. Even the skeptics were pleasantly surprised by the taste. It was a warm day, so I served it cold.
