READY IN: 20mins
Recipe by Merlot

I created this dish to serve with the Moroccan Lemon Chicken. However, this is a great side dish for any meal.

This is a very common dish in Israel. I usually serve my rice with fried onions, but tried this for a change. Presentation was nice and it realy livened up the rice.
