Recipe by Sackville

I love this as a simple side dish to so many things. You could also use it as a base for a salad, and add some roasted vegetables to round it out.

I loved the subtle lemon flavor in this. We had it with shrimp kabobs and it was the perfect side. I also loved being able to use some of the lemon thyme from my garden! I think next time, I will not guess at the mL to cups conversion though, it was a little moist. :) My fault. Once I have that figured out, this will definitely be made again.
