I followed the directions exactly as stated, except that I let the rice cool before adding the other ingredients. It was delicious and wasn't sticky, clumpy or mushy. I'll be making this again.

It was ok. I added some chopped carrots to the mix. Definitely must eat right away-- not very good as left overs because the rice seems to get mushy after a day. Will make again.

Delicious, and tastes even better the second day! Chill for at least a few hours to allow the flavors to blend. I sometimes substitute instant brown rice and it comes out fine.
