Description

Rejuvenating green rice flavored with Parsley and served hot with crunchy almonds Parmesan . This dish I am sharing today is Italian , as I have used all the Italian cuisine must haves , which includes even cheese , to make a complete Vegan meal I have used Almonds Parmesan instead of cheese. Italians do make Pilaf with Rice, veggies and meat , which inspired me to make this dish with Parsley as main ingredient which gave a unique flavor to the rice and made this a must have in my hubby's lunch box . Parsley do look similar to Coriander but with mild flavor and taste unique to that of coriander , so if you want to treat your taste buds with a different flavor than usual try this simple recipe and leave your guests to wonder , that even a herb can be used for flavoring the entire dish without any spices .
