**This rice makes delicious vegetarian sandwiches also.  I take a whole wheat pita pocket and fill it with the rice, adding fresh lettuce, tomato cucumber and avocado, and then top it with my favorite dressing.  The fresh veggies make for a delicious texture and the rice makes it filling as if its the meat.  If you have any leftover rice you will have to try these as they are nutritious and delicious.**
