This Persian style rice is one of my favorite dishes alongside Protective Diet Falafel, Hummus, Fattoush Salad or Tabouli Salad. I enjoyed it regularly at Reza’s in Chicago. This was my favorite Persian restaurant before going oil-free and vegan. After talking with the owner and chef, I realized this herbal rice was far from what it seemed. No wonder I craved it. It was loaded with butter and oil. My special remake has all the protective and flavorful components, minus the saturated fat and empty calories. Pair this dish along with some of the suggested Middle Eastern classics and serve up a Protective Diet feast fit for Persian royals.
I love this rice! I always cook it in the Pressure cooker…easy and delicious! Sometimes I sub edamame for the chickpeas. It is the perfect accompaniment to a Middle Eastern feast!
I served this with a dollop of hummus on top of the rice and sprinkled it with the Fattoush Dressing. YUMMO!
I am anxious to make this recipe! I rarely can find fresh dill. Would dill weed work? Thanks!
I admit I used the dried dill, but plan to make it again this week with fresh!
Dried dill will taste much stronger and will not give it a fresh herbal flavor. I would swap fresh dill out for fresh parsley or cilantro before using dried dill.
I loved Reza’s too! Thanks for the remake of this favorite.
My Chicago friend! I hope you enjoy this easy-make remake!
