  1. I’ve been in a bit of a rut with making the same couple types of rice, so I’ll have to change it up with this! Thanks for sharing, Diane! I am always so inspired by your posts. Can’t wait to go to the store!

  2. This sounds like an interesting recipe! We make lemon rice too but in a little different way by tempering oil with nuts and spices and adding lime juice to it before mixing into cooked rice 🙂 They both might taste different I guess.
