A simple recipe for zucchini and rice. It gets its great flavour from the fresh dill and is served with a garlic yoghurt sauce.
This was delicious! I used Mexican zucchini and quinoa. Instead of boiling the zucchini, which I think would kill the flavor, I sauteed it on medium-high while the quinoa was cooking, and then I turned it up to high for the last few minutes to brown it. I used Greek yogurt for the sauce, so it was nice and tangy; it mixed perfectly with the caramelized zucchini. I thought a cup of dill might be a bit strong, but it was just right. A definite keeper--and so easy! - 23 Jun 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I can't describe how delicious this recipe is. My teenage daughter said "I didn't think I'd like it but I did!--this is my favorite meal!" I served it with pan-seared sea bass and it was a perfect refreshing healthy summer meal. I confess I didn't have fresh dill so used 1/2 amount of dried dillweed and it was outstanding. I found that in a skillet the small amount of rice with water doesn't really boil so the zucchini really did saute in the olive oil and I had to cover the pan in order for the rice to get tender. Ingredients already in kitchen, minimal prep time, fabulous blend of flavors....I put it in my "Family Loved It" file! - 25 Jul 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
Very tasty. I used dried dill at half the reccomended amount. Fresh would be the bomb. The sauce really takes this dish to the stars. Served with toasted French bread on the side. A simple yet elegant recipe. - 12 Aug 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
