While preparing dinner the other day, I wanted to include a simple rice dish that was light and was not bursting with intense flavor. Instead of making plain rice, either boiled or sautéed in butter, I just wanted to add the refreshing flavor and vibrant color of fresh herbs.
I simply boiled the rice with a few dry spices. When it was tender I mixed in the herbs. I selected some of my favorites: dill, parsley, cilantro and chives. Sliced fresh green onions provide flavor as well. To garnish Rice with Fresh Herbs, I topped it with a few gold toasted cashews to complement the white and green.
Add Rice with Fresh Herbs to your repertoire for a quick side dish. It pairs well with any entrée and all side dishes.
