Recipe type: Side
Cuisine: American
Serves: 4 servings
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • ½ bell pepper, diced
  • ¼ cup sun dried tomatoes, diced
  • 1 cup uncooked rice, preferably brown
  • 2 cups veggie broth or water
  • ½ cup peas (optional)
  • 1 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Generous pinch black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon chopped parsley, for garnish (optional)
  1. Heat the olive oil in a skillet or saucepan with a lid. Add the onion, pepper, and sun-dried tomato, if using. Saute, stirring occasionally, until the onions are soft, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add the rice and saute for 2 minutes. Add the liquid, peas, turmeric, salt, and pepper. Bring the mixture to a simmer or low boil. Cover, reduce the heat to low, and cook until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is tender. If the rice isn't tender when the liquid has been absorbed, add a little more liquid and continue simmering for a few minutes.
  3. Sprinkle with parsley, if using, and serve warm.
