My grandma's recipe--perfect with seafood or chicken.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 cups pearl rice
  • 3 dehydrated bell peppers
  • 12 teaspoon chili flakes (optional)
  • 2 12 cups leeks
  • 4 12 cups water or 4 12 cups vegetable stock
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil

Directions

  1. Have a pot with the olive oil preheating on medium heat.
  2. Chop and clean the leeks and peppers. After the oil has heated, get the leeks in the pot.
  3. Once the leaks start getting soft and translucent, add 2 cups of rice and let it fry along with the leeks until the rice grain gets a solid white color--if the rice start browning it's gone too far. :(.
  4. Add the 4-41/2 cups of water (or veggie stock) little by little.
  5. Add in some salt, black pepper and the chili flakes (you can omit if desired) and let it simmer for 20 minutes
  6. Preheat the oven to 350F
  7. Put the chopped peppers on top of the rice when it has a bit water/stock left in pot. Bake the rice for another 15-20 minutes--if not sure that it is done, taste the rice please.
