Leeks and Carrots

Leeks and Carrots created by Lori Mama

In Turkey, we serve this dish both hot and cold. It's up to you. Do not add rice in the beginning or it will become mushy. You can exclude lemon juice, but remember that lemon juice increases the cooking time. So if you do not want to use lemon juice, then you'd better to reduce cooking time.

    Simple yet tasty. I did add some freshly ground pepper. Made for New Kids on the Block Tag. :)
