Lemon Parsley Rice



We’re loving this quick and easy side dish at the moment.  Who knew cooking your rice in stock and adding a few simple ingredients would give it so much flavour?!

Lemon Parsley Rice


1 Cup Basmati Rice (or rice of your choice, it just means cooking times will vary)

2 1/4 Cups Chicken Stock

Juice and Zest of 1 Lemon

1/4 Cup Finely Chopped Flat Leaf Parsley


In a medium sized saucepan, bring the chicken stock to a boil.

Add your rice and cook according to cooking times on the packet directions.

Once the rice is cooked, strain and fluff with a fork.

Add the lemon juice, zest and parsley and toss through the rice.

Now you’re done and ready to serve.


I found this recipe on a lovely little blog called Loving My Domestic Life.

About Rebekah

Hi, I'm Rebekah, a happily married mum of six who also happens to be a cooking and baking addict and new accidental blogger. I live in Rural Sout-East Queensland, about an hour and a half from Brisbane . I have a 16 year old son who is itching to learn to drive, a 9 year old daughter with Type 1 Diabetes who loves to play her violin and dance her way from one end of the house to the other, 7 year old twins, a son who loves cars, trucks and bike riding with his dad and his twin sister who loves to paint and draw her life and hang it on mummy's fridge. Then there is Little Miss 5, the happiest child I have ever met, very independent, and she dances and sings everywhere she goes, followed closely by her almost 3 year old sister who thinks she is the boss of everything and is a mixture of all of her siblings put together. To say life can be exhausting is an understatement, but we wouldn't have it any other way. Plate4Eight came about through my need to get organized in the kitchen. I no longer have time to go searching through cookbooks and folders for "that recipe we liked last week", and the more organized I am, the more time I have to spend with my family and experiment in the kitchen, which is my form of relaxation. So, if you're looking for something to have for dinner tonight, or just want to try something new, have a look around. I hope you find something you like.
