A wonderful rice side dish to accompany fish. I served it with simple sautéed scallops and it was delicious. I followed the recipe exactly and then added peas as suggested in the reviews. My husband and I both like lemon and it was perfectly seasoned. “This is a keeper!”, said my husband. Read More

Hubs gave this one two thumbs up. I'm not much on jasmine rice but he couldn't stop talking about how creamy and flavorful it was. I served it with grilled steak and shrimp and it went really nice with that. Definite keeper! Read More

This is excellent. My Jasmine rice called for a cook time of 15 minutes so that is what I did. Added some defrosted peas at the end when I mixed the lemon mixture and the parm. Served with salmon and homemade applesauce, yum yum! Read More

I love this rice! I am a huge lemon fan but not a rice fan. This is delicious and so easy to make. The jasmine rice is so soft and creamy. My whole family (8 yo 11 yo and picky 48 yo) all loved it. I made it 2 days in a row and now I'm making it again. LOVE IT! (I followed the recipe exactly.) Read More

I made this last night and was a little apprehensive because I'm not a huge lemon fan but OMG this was so amazing! My fiance said it was the best pilaf he's ever had. The creaminess and hint of lemon was outstanding! I made it as written except I needed to add 1/4 cup extra chicken broth but that's only because my stovetop cooks fast. This recipe is a keeper!

I think the recipe needs some work. The parmesan cheese (which recipes never state- do they mean DRY or FRESH?) so frustrating!! I used dry Parmesan and to me it was way too strong and overpowered the dish. If I made it again I would not do the full amount for sure. Otherwise it would have been good. Read More
