Lemon Parsley Rice

This is one of those recipes that just happened one night.  I was hungry for greek dolmathes (rice and pine nut stuffed grape leaves) but didn’t have any grape leaves!  I also had some leftover basmati rice and asparagus.

Lemon Parseley Rice is perfect with steamed asparagus!

1 cup basmati rice (cooked)

¼ cup parsley, chopped

4 green onions, chopped

2 cloves garlic, smashed

a few grinds of freshly ground black pepper

¼ cup fresh lemon juice (juice from one small lemon)

1/8 cup extra virgin olive oil

dash of salt

2 tablespoons sesame seeds (optional)

Mix lemon juice, olive oil, salt, pepper and garlic in a small bowl.  Warm up the basmati rice in a microwave (warm not hot).  Add chopped parseley, sesame seeds and green onion and toss with the lemon dressing. 

It was perfect with the asparagus!
