Rice with Lemongrass and Green Onion

Top Review by FlemishMinx

This had a nice subtle flavor. I served this with Ginger Chicken, and I do think it is probably best served with a highly flavored dish-- which is to say that the mildness of this sidedish won't overpower another dish, and to me, that is a positive. Thanks for posting !
