    Cookgirl's Note:

    From Organic Gardening Magazine summer 2004. An interesting variation on lemon rice for herb lovers using not lemon juice rather lemon scented herbs. Try this with Asian or Greek themed meals! I purposefully did not use stock for this recipe so that the fresh flavors of the herbs shine through. Wink, wink-but this may be an acquired taste for some!
