Great flavor. Used shiitake mushrooms. I actually didn't add the zucchini in until just prior to serving, to maintain texture and appearance. Was a bit dissapointed the most of the rice at bottom of bowl didn't mix with the other ingredients and was just gluggly white rice- like risottos gone wrong. Will make again, but stop and manually stir a few times.

I used the grating disc rather than the slicing disc, as that was what had been used in the picture. The zucchini (cougette), did not look like the picture after cooking for 15mins. I omitted the mushroom but flavours were delicious.
