        None of your recipes tell how much each makes. Am I missing something?

        I guess it's because when I look at a recipe and it says it serves 2-4 or 4-6 I think to myself, "yeah right, is that 2-4 toddlers or 2-4 adults?" I usually just look at the quantity of ingredients to tell how many the recipe will serve based on my families needs.

        This 1 jar mix contains 1 1/4 c. rice plus mushrooms which will reconstitute in water- so, when it's complete it will serve approximately 4 people as a side dish accompanying a main dish, such as grilled chicken or steak-

        then again, it depends on your idea of a serving- I have teenage boys and a husband who works in construction for a living- so this recipe serves the 4 of us as a side dish. If you have younger kids at home, than this will probably serve closer to 6 people.
