A Big Bunch of Chervil

In my Mariquita Farm Mystery this week I received two huge bunches of chervil.  In years past I have prepared David Leibovitz's egg-less mayonnaise  but, sadly the rest of the chervil ended up in the compost.  This year I am determined to make good use of all of my lovely and rare chervil. 
Chervil usually appears but once a year in the mystery boxes, so if I'm not motivated to cook with it I'll have to wait until next year to enjoy chervil's spicy greenness.
Hunger combined with laziness can often produce great recipes.  I entered my kitchen with a tummy that needed to be filled but not much energy to cook.  What I produced was tasty, filling and allowed me to use a substantial amount of chervil  (YAY!).
Here is the recipe:
1 cup cooked brown basmati rice
1/4 cup grated cotswold double gloucester with onions &chives (or cheddar cheese)
1T olive oil
1/3 cup washed and finely chopped chervil
*Heat rice in bowl in microwave
*add cheese, oil and chervil
*salt to taste
*eat, yum!
