This was delicious & intensely flavored as stated. First time I made exactly as stated, but the second time around I used small garlic cloves, 1/4 teas. black pepper, and a little less lemon juice. This is the perfect amount of heat & flavor for my taste.
I love to toss in some sauteed spinach at the end.
Thanks Kittencal:)

This may be my favorite rice ever! I didn't even add in the feta and olives because it tasted so good without them (and I was trying to cut out a tad bit of fat. I could live off of your recipes every meal of the day and be happy.

Tried this tonight. Only had basmati rice, and cut back on the lemon a bit, but it turned out GREAT! My 4 year old LOVED it. This recipe is definitely a keeper. Will likely double it next time! Thanks!

The only complaint my kids had was that I didn't make enough! Next time (and there will be a next time, and a next time, and a next time . . .) I will double it.

This was just perfect for what I had in mind. I served it with Greek grilled jumbo shrimp with lemon and oregano dressing.

This was wonderful with grilled lamb chops! Exactly what I was looking for. I used fat-free feta cheese to make it cholesterol free.

This was just ok for us. I used dill instead of oregano because its what I had. Didn't get a whole lot of lemon flavor out of it though.

Terrific! Flavors were delightful. I added more lemon and garlic and used the rice cooker. I added the feta after the rice was fully cooked and flipped to the warm setting. Topped the rice with olives upon serving. Thank you Kittencal, this is now a favorite of ours!
