I came up with this dish, but my sister loves it so much that I had to name it for her. Sometimes I saute the rice and vegetables ahead of time to save time at the last minute. I use whole canned tomatoes and don't break them up much, so that my picky hubby can eat around them.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Saute rice, onion, bell pepper and garlic in olive oil and butter, stirring until onions are translucent.
  2. Add remaining ingredient and bring to a gentle boil.
  3. Cover and simmer 30-35 minutes, or until rice is tender. Don't remove lid until suggested cooking time is over.

puppitypup, we really enjoyed the rice! It could be paired with any protein. We served at a dinner party for 8, so the rating is from the entire group. One man said he could eat this rice EVERY day! It was very easy, too. Next time I would add a bit more peas, but that's personal preference! I might sub corn for the red pepper, too, just to see. It's versitle. I'm sure there's lots one could try! Thanks, Julie!

This was wonderful!! It does look like a long list of ingredients but it is so fast to prepare!! I made as is (but without the carrot and with canned peas)- the time of cooking was less - the rice was cooked within 20 minutes. Thanks puppitypup for a real tasty rice dish!!

Don't let the long list of ingredients scare you off from this one! It comes together very easily and makes a nice side dish. I have never used worcestershire sauce or sugar in my rice and I was pleasantly surprised at how good they were! Thank you puppitypup, I'm with Lauren this is great!
