Green Spring Vegetable Rice


  • Serves: 4

  • Difficulty: Easy

This dish has a fried rice vibe, but with a Mediterranean flavour profile. The green “sauce” comes from our delicious Arugula Pesto, blended with cilantro, jalapeño and lime juice for a bit of kick and brightness. Add some richness with a bit of creamy feta or goat cheese, and enjoy!
