Martha Stewart Living Herb and Scallion Rice

I have a soft spot in my heart for rice. I absolutely love rice, as an ingredient or a side dish, however it's prepared I adore it. Now I know that nutritionally I should be eating more brown rice and putting away the white, but try as hard as I may I just can't find the taste for brown rice. I try to eat healthy, but white rice is one area I wont compromise, I would rather sacrifice in other areas. However, the white rice that I make I try to add fresh ingredients and vegetables to in order to make the recipes and dishes as healthy as possible. Recently, Martha Stewart Living magazine had a recipe for Herb and Scallion Rice using fresh herbs and garlic, which looked simple and delicious.

This recipe has 8 ingredients. It makes a total of 4 servings and takes approximately 50 minutes to prepare. The ingredients are basic and I had no problems finding any of them at my local grocery store. The only modification I made to this recipe was to substitute olive oil for the vegetable oil and use my food processor to blend the ingredients, instead of the blender suggested by the recipe. I followed the remainder of the recipe as written.

I absolutely loved this recipe. The finished rice has a beautiful green color and tasted delicious. There are many variations this recipe could be modified to using different spices and fresh herbs and is a great base recipe. The best part is that it only takes a couple minutes more than making plain white rice and turns out great. Overall, this recipe is very easy and makes a light, flavorful rice dish.

For the recipe go to Herb and Scallion Rice.

  4. We eat a fair amount of rice in my family too, though usually it's for a stir-fry or something similar. This would make for a nice change of pace. Thanks for recommending it!
