While it is true that Indian cuisine is my passion, I enjoy traveling around the world in my kitchen, whether I am making more traditional dishes or coming up with fusion-style creations. This time around, I was dreaming of an escape from the winter wonderland that officially is called spring currently.
This lemony Greek rice with olives and herbs proved to be a fine accompaniment to a Greek themed meal that I planned a while back. It's very easy to make but the flavor is rather bold and fancy. Next time you are planning a homage to Mediterranean cuisine, considering dishing this one up. I found it to be a fine accompaniment to gigantes aimmered in a garlicky tomato aauce. Serve a Greek salad to complete the meal and the Greek dining experience.
