I don’t have much to say about this week’s French Fridays with Dorie recipe, Cardamom Rice Pilaf. It was delicious, the flavor was unique, the rice was cooked perfectly, and my whole family loved it. But still, it’s just rice pilaf with the addition of bruised cardamom seeds and lemon zest.
I served the rice with Curried Chicken, Peppers, and Peas en Papillote, also from Around My French Table (I’ve been dying to try this recipe and making the rice gave me the perfect excuse). The flavors of the two dishes went really well together.
If you are looking for a rice pilaf with a unique flavor, give this one a try! I can’t wait to see what the other Doristas served with their Cardamom Rice Pilaf.
