Gaby’s Green Rice

While I’ve never met a carb that I didn’t like, green rice was a new experiment for me. Not a beans and rice kinda girl, green rice seemed like a logical alternative. Plus, it was green so basically a vegetable. This green rice goddess of What’s Gaby Cooking was originally part of a larger bowl on her site. She really never fails to deliver a fantastic addition to the recipe repertoire and is one of my fav discoveries of quarantine.

This was a huge hit with both adults and kiddos and couldn’t have been easier to prepare in advance. Try it for your next Taco Bar Tuesday.
