Herb Lemon Rice


Herb Lemon Rice


  • 1 C uncooked basmati rice
  • 1 3/4 C water
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and smashed
  • 3/4 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tbsp Italian parsley leaves, roughly chopped
  • 3 tbsp dill, roughly chopped
  • 1 scallion, cut into thin rounds
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 lemon


Place the rice in a medium pot. Rinse and drain with cold water until the water runs clear. Next, add 1 3/4 cup water for cooking, garlic clove, sea salt, and olive oil. Bring rice to a boil. Once it is boiling, reduce the heat to a simmer, cover, and cook for 15 minutes. Remove it from the heat and let the rice sit for another 5 minutes.

Remove and discard the garlic clove. Add the parsley, dill, and scallion. Fluff with a fork, mixing the herbs into the rice. Add some freshly ground black pepper and the juice from 1/2 a lemon. Mix to combine and serve.
