Spinach and Lemon Rice Pilaf

Total Time

Great side dish for roast or grilled chicken, grilled steak or fish. The vegetables and lemon give a wonderful fresh garden taste. You can vary the amounts of the veggies to your taste. I use just a little more rice to stock than usual as I prefer a slightly drier pilaf.
