The other day I was feeling a bit sluggish: I had over eaten and it was super hot so I wasn’t feeling like eating much and certainly I didn’t want to eat anything heavy. So I decided to go for some simple white rice and then spice it up with some herbs and lemon.
Super basic but it was incredibly good. The lemon juice really made it pop and I was surprised by how flavorful it was. I think this will become one of my favorite detox dishes!!
- 3-4 oz rice per person
- lemon juice
- extra virgin olive oil
- fresh herbs (parsley, chive, cilantro...)
- Boil your rice until al dente. For this dish you want your rice to have some bite and you do not want it to be sticky at all so short grain rice like you would use to cook risotto works best.
- When the rice is cooked, drain it and dress it with a vinaigrette you have prepared by mixing the juice of 1 lemon, 1 table spoon olive oil, chopped aromatic herbs and salt and pepper to taste. Mix everything well and enjoy. The lemon flavor is strongest right after pouring the dressing on the rice, so dress the rice right before eating!!
- The lemon will make the rice really pop and take this simple dish to another level.
