I like the Toasted Almond mix so much that I often add nuts myself to the other flavors; the crunch adds interest.
You can find recipes at the Near East website for other ideas.
I use it alone, or
I pay more for other flavors of Near East Rice Pilaf at my local grocer. Then I mix one box of the other flavor with one box of this 'original' and prepare it together. It's enough for a larger group of people, aqnd taste more interesting.
