​Don't omit starchy carbohydrates from our meals altogether! Instead, reduce the carbohydrate load next time you fancy rice by using brown vs. white and adding an equal quantity of vegetables for greater fiber and extra nutrients. This garden version of rice pilaf, sporting a riot of Mediterranean flavor accents, makes a great supper side dish whenever you serve fish, chicken or lamb. It also makes an excellent stand-alone lunch, accompanied by a little green salad!
