Blogging Marathon# 61: Week 2/ Day 3

Theme: Meal Ideas

Dish: Greek style Rice with Dill

For the last day of this week’s marathon, I have a simple meal with Greek style Lemon rice with dill. This is a popular side dish served in many Mediterranean restaurants and is very similar to our very own Indian Lemon rice except for the addition of dill. This recipe is from Vegan Eats World cookbook by Terry Hope Romero. 

Lemon rice is the first thing that comes to my mind when I have leftover rice. In fact I even make lemon flavored oats, barley and quinoa. So today’s recipe is on the same lines but with dried oregano and fresh dill that add delicious Greek flavor to the dish.

Since this is for ‘Meal Ideas’ theme, I served the rice with Greek cucumber & chickpea salad. Both the dishes together make for a balanced meal and they can be made in less than 30 minutes. Recipe for the salad is coming up soon.
