    Semra22's Note:

    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.

      This rice pilaf is just excellant! we love it , it had a lot of flavour with the carrots, spinach and lemon and a nice presentation colour. Since i used canned chicken stock I did not add salt, I used brown rice and olive oil instead of butter, had to leave the green onion out had none in. i made a full recipe because i love having rice in the freezer ready to reheat on a busy night, glad I did, it is some of the best I've made. Oh almost forgot I used frozen spinach well dried in paper towel, worked very well. I will be making this again, thanks for posting.

      THis looked lovely sitting on the table! Next time I'll give an extra squirt of lemon & decrease the chicken stock a tad, as you recommend. Thanks!
