    darthlaurie's Note:

    Every September Salt Lake has an amazing Greek Festival. Back in 2001 I got a pamphlet of Greek recipes from the festival. This rice pilaf is very similar to the rice pilaf served at my favorite Greek restaurant. Opa!

      We love lemony rice around here and this recipe fit the bill. The directions for cooking were perfect. The only change I made was to add more lemon juice and zest from one lemon right before serving. I used Veggie Better Than Bullion and like another reviewer mentioned, it looked a little dirty because the broth is so dark. No matter, it was still delicious!

      Unbeliavably easy and delicious. I used veggie broth instead. Served with sauteed zucchini and salad on pita. Thank you!
