Aussie Swap #88: One of my favorite recipe dishes to date! I love how simple yet full of flavor this dish is! The pine nuts take this rice to another level - the crunch and nutty flavor - AWESOME!
The rice was brown rice, Recipe #177017, using chicken stock in place of the water. Once the rice was cooked the dish was super quick to put together. I did toss in the pine nuts a few minutes before the onion was done to allow them to toast as well. This was served with Recipe #460368 and Recipe #427739 for a delicious Greek meal. Made for ZWT9.
Good rice, very easily made, I love pine nuts so for me that is a great addition, and the dill and mint lend flavour and aroma. All in all, lovely, enjoyed for ZWT9, thank you morgainegeiser!
