Apparently, it’s Greek week here at AN.
 
Yesterday I wrote about my neverending love of Greek food. This is actually the side dish I served with the lamb stew.
 
It. Was. Awesome.
 
If you digest rice well and are looking for an easily absorbable form of glucose, and want to make things that taste really, really good, you need to make this rice.
 
I love that it’s not only loaded with veggies, but also healthy fats from the bone broth and butter (which slows the absoption of glucose). It’s the perfect side dish.
