DIRECTIONS

  • In a heavy saucepan or casserole, melt the butter over moderate heat.
  • Add the onion, mushrooms and sliced green pepper and cook gently until they begin to soften.
  • Stir in the tomato together with the garlic and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Now add the rice and the turmeric or powdered saffron, and cook 2 minutes until grains are thoroughly coated with butter but not browned, stirring constantly.
  • Pour in the broth (stock), sprinkle with salt and bring to a boil, stirring.
  • Reduce the heat to low.
  • Cover and simmer for approximately 20 minutes or until all the liquid has been absorbed and the rice is tender but still firm to the bite-- not mushy.
  • Gently fluff the rice with a fork.
  • Spoon onto a heated serving platter, being careful not to mash it, and sprinkle with chopped parsley.
