Lemon Basil Rice

Lemon Basil Rice

by Pam on May 12, 2014

I was making a lemon caper pork dish for dinner and I wanted to serve it with rice. I decided to add lemon, lemon zest, and fresh basil to the basmati rice and it turned out delicious. The lemon made the rice pop with flavor and paired nicely with the fresh basil. This rice was excellent with our lemony pork. We all enjoyed it, although my kids still added soy sauce to theirs. They just seem to think that soy sauce always makes rice better. Silly kids.

Heat the chicken broth, water, lemon juice, lemon zest, and butter over medium high heat until boiling. Once it starts to boil, add the rice and season with sea salt and white pepper, to taste. Cover with a lid and reduce heat to low and cook 20 minutes.

Remove the rice from the burner without removing the lid and let it sit for 5 minutes. Carefully remove the lid and fluff rice with a fork. Sprinkle with chopped basil then serve. Enjoy.
