Is it paprika or saffron or both in the recipe? The ingredient list shows paprika which isn& 39;t included in he directions; however, saffron is shown in the directions. Sounds yummy!

cooking time for brown rice is much longer than 20 minutes. 15-20 minutes is usually good for white rice.

Rebecca - sorry about that, both would work but I prefer it with saffron.

Audra - I do agree. I like my rice al dente but you could cook up to 30 min.
