Helpful hints

  • Cutting salt back to 1/4 teaspoon will bring the sodium down to 211 mg per serving.
  • You may use brown or white rice in this recipe. The brown rice may take a little longer to soften. The brown rice has slightly more potassium and phosphorus, but not all of those minerals will be absorbed by the body.
