Lebanese Rice

This green rice recipe is very unusual as the rice is mixed with vermicelli. You can use Lebanon rice as a side dish with meat or fish main course.

For US to UK equivalents see this rough guide

Recipe Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup vermicelli
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1 1/2 cup of rice soaked for 2 hours
  • Salt to taste
  • 3 cups water


In a pan melt the butter. When the butter is melted fry the vermicelli till it turns to golden brown.

Add the washed and drained rice into vermicelli. Cook on low heat till the rice is soft and tender. Gradually add some water to keep the rice moist.

Add salt and pepper to taste and serve as a side dish or hot with yogurt.

As with all recipes which involve cooking and baking a sensible approach must be taken especially when dealing with warm or hot (temperature) ingredients. If you are unable to take due care, please do not attempt to make any of these recipes. All recipes are tried at your own risk.
