Wonderful basic recipe ... used 2 tbsp. lemon juice ... fresh garlic ... and 1/2 white wine ... left out the mint as I didn't have any ... and used a mixture of wild, whole grain and brown rice ... it was delicious will be making this again ...

We have a Greek restaurant near us and I love their lemony rice. I asked what was in it and they said basically the same things in this recipe. I want to try it again and add more lemon. I want to work with it but it's still a good side dish. I have mint growing all over my front yard so I just chopped it up and threw it in. It was fun and good!

I love Greek food and flavors and while this is good, I personally think itwould be much better if you substitute orzo for the rice. And add peas, which go perfectly with lemon and mint.
