How it tasted: I'm a pretty big fan of rice dishes so I really liked this one. I really hate Dijon but used it just to follow directions. Next time i'll only use 1/2 tsp of Dijon. The taste of the Dijon adds more flavor to it though. The lemon really adds to this meal b/c it works very well with the Dijon mustard. Lemon water was also a nice change.
