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, Alton Brown's Baked Brown Rice, 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 Greek Beef Kabobs and Garden Salad - Mediterranean Style 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!
