Dill Rice Premium PD Recipe

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.


  1. 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!
