basmati rice, rinsed
1 (2 inch) piece
fresh ginger, minced
lemon, juiced and zested
salt and ground black pepper to taste
This is the best rice recipe I have ever tasted! I made it exactly as stated in the recipe and I wouldn't change a thing!
I thought it had too much lemon and too much ginger and right now I'm really into lemon. My lemons were large so the recipe might be sensitive to size.
Excellent! Followed the recipe, using Low Sodium Chicken Stock and everyone loved it. The bright, fresh flavors of the ginger and lemon made this a perfect side to go with Baked Scallops. We will enjoy this often. Thanks for sharing!
I made this rice (exactly as suggested) as a side dish for lemon pork gyros and it was a hit! Even my two young kids ate every last piece.
Had this with lobster tail, and it complemented the flavour wonderfully. Will definitely be making this rice again.
My whole family LOVED this rice! I had to tweak the recipe because we didn't have lemons (only lime), so I used lemon juice and lime zest. We also did not have basmati rice, so I used jasmine rice. Still turned out DELICIOUS! Thank you!
This is a great recipe for boring white rice! I am rating this recipe as written! The second time I made it (right now)I used regular long grain white rice and used an orange instead of lemon. Added some chopped jalapeno's as well :) Went great with my Spiced Orange Pork Chops. Thanks for the recipe!
Delicious! Simple, but flavorful - I don't like plain white rice but between the chicken broth and lemon, this was bright and delicious. The ginger flavor was very subtle. This would be a great side to any number of dishes, and it worked particularly well with the spicy Yogurt-Marinated Salmon I served it with.
