What are nutrient differences when using brown rice? Dietitian comment: The main difference is more potassium and phosphorus in a serving. Potassium is 121 mg instead of 95 mg, and phosphorus is 99 mg instead of 47 mg. However some of the phosphorus is bound in the whole grain of the rice and not completely absorbed. Many renal dietitians today support using the whole grains like brown rice as long as phosphorus is well controlled. An added bonus[INVALID]you get an additional 0.8 g fiber per serving.

I loved the recipe but my husband didn't. On the second try we sauted minced garlic in and left out the vermicelli noodles and he liked it. I honestly think he just didn't like the idea of noodles with rice.

I highly recommend this recipe. It was easy to make and full of flavor. It was enjoyed by all and not just the dialysis patient.
