Update Servings
  • 2 olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped (use more if you wish)
  • 1/2 bell pepper, chopped (use more if you wish)
  • 1/4 sun dried tomatoes, chopped (optional)
  • 1 uncooked rice, preferably brown
  • 1 salt
  • 1 turmeric
  • 2 broth or water
  • 1 chopped parsley, for garnish (optional)
  • Heat olive oil in a skillet or saucepan with a lid. Add onion, pepper and tomato, if using. Saute, stirring occasionally, until onions are soft, about 5 minutes.
  • Add rice and stir to mix well; cook for another minute or two. Add liquid, salt and turmeric. Cover, adjust heat to maintain a simmer, and cook until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender (about 40 minutes for brown, 20 minutes for white). If the rice isn't tender when the liquid has been absorbed, add a little more liquid and continue simmering for a few minutes.
  • Sprinkle with parsley, if using, and serve warm.
