Splendid Side – Green Rice

Sometimes I spend so much time investigating main courses that I totally forget the other parts of the meal.  This recipe is so good, however, that it’ll make you forget the main course. The tiny toasted sesame seeds add such a nutty flavor and the copious amount of parsley keeps the dish light and fresh.

I served this dish with simply sauteed squash but I think it would be a great accompaniment for salmon, or any fish really, or chicken.  Or beans.  Or anything.  Or nothing.  Just alone.  Yum.
