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.
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!
