Easy Spring Pilaf with Herbs

  By Sarah Eastin  ,

April 15, 2016

This spring rice pilaf is delicious and so easy to make! The herbs are aromatic and the lemon gives the dish a nice brightness and compliments the herbs perfectly.

1 cup dill

1 cup parsley

1 cup green onions

1 cup spinach

1 box rice pilaf (Near East is a good, easy to find brand)

1/4 – 1/2 cup peas (depending on how much you like peas) (frozen works well)

1 package of Beyond Chicken (or other vegan chicken) (optional -see note below)

Juice of 1 lemon


Pulse the dill, parsley, green onions, and spinach in a food processor fitted with an S-blade until chopped finely.

Cook the pilaf according to the package directions.

When you have only five minutes left on the pilaf add the peas and vegan chicken and let cook (I chopped the chicken strips in half but they would be fine to leave whole).

When cooking is complete, stir the mixture together and add the prepared greens.

Add the juice of the lemon and stir to combine. Serve immediately!

Note: Use rinsed and drained canned white beans in place of the vegan chicken if desired.
