Lemon Basil Rice

This quick dish is a great way to use leftover rice. Serve it warm or cold — as a side or a main course. The light flavor is mild enough that even my picky kids really enjoyed it…unlike the first version that was filled with curry and red pepper! We liked the sweet of the mandarin oranges with it, as well. –Mellyn
