Greek Rice


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 1/2 cups rice
  • 3 cups good quality chicken broth
  • 1 lemon
  • salt and pepper


Grate at least 2 tablespoons lemon peel (or more for a stronger lemon taste); set aside Squeeze out juice from lemon, and combine with butter, rice and broth (salt and pepper to taste) Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer, cover and simmer (without peeking!) for 20-30 minutes, or until the liquid is absorbed Remove from heat, and stir in lemon peel. 
Enjoy while stil warm!
