What could be better with grilled meats and vegetables, than a simple Greek Tomato Pilaf? So simple, and so flavorful…..
and adds just the right amount of flavor and texture to accompany the Lamb and Vegetable Kabobs…..
I will admit, I probably should have cut the bell peppers a bit thinner than I did, but it was perfect! Alex told me not to change a thing….words that I love to hear! Here is a close up shot of the Tomato Pilaf…..
I thought it was strange when I read to cook without covering, but it worked. I used regular long-grain white rice and Italian parsley, nothing fancy here folks…except the flavor! Thank you so much for following along with this month’s Cooking with Astrology meal…..
The Greek Orange and Olive Salad can be found here, and next up, Honey and Lemon Tart…..
Sunshine on a plate 🙂 Enjoy!
