From Lebanon with love, we introduce to you this tasty side dish recipe that you will absolutely love it. This recipe is probably the most common rice side dish throughout the Middle East. You can add some additional flavors of herbs like chopped parsley or a nice freshness and toasted pine nuts to bring a great crunch.
1. Add the butter and vermicelli to a large sauté pan or pot that has a tight fitting lid. Brown the noodles, stirring often, and be careful not to burn them. Add the rice and water to the pot and bring to a boil. Cover, bring the heat down to low, and simmer for about 20 minutes or until the water is absorbed and the rice is tender.
2. Fluff with a fork and serve as a side dish to fish, chicken or beef.
3. To serve, garnish with toasted pine nuts if desired.
