      A tasty rice dish, went down a treat. Although I enjoyed the flavour next time I think I'll try using chicken stock instead of just water.

      I made up a batch of this last night, not changing a thing except to use all olive oil instead of a mix of oil and butter. I zested the lemon with my Microplane. The taste of the rice was amazing! I'm planning on making this again tomorrow night, can't wait!
