    Great recipe, thank you. tmrc_emoticons.)  I used all buckwheat, no rice.  I didn't have any chives, but added some fresh mint and baby spinach at the end, delicious!

    This recipe is gluten-free.  Can I ask why you need an alternative to arborio rice?  You could try other rice but the texture would be different and you may need to adjust the liquid quantities.
