DIRECTIONS

  • Sauté finely minced onion on butter and when transparent add green peas and parsley leaves (it will be even better if you use baby onions).
  • Add some water and cook until green peas are almost soft (skip this if you use canned green peas, just sauté onion a bit). At the moment peas are soft; all liquid must evaporate, but be careful not to burn green peas.
  • Add some more butter and whole rice. Sauté it until rice become greasy with butter, than add water, salt and pepper. Usual measure of the manufacturer for cooking rice is 1:3 (rice: water), so do it as they say.
  • Cook rice stirring occasionally until rice is done.
  • Put rice in casserole pot (greased with some butter) and put it in preheated oven (180°C) for 15 minutes. Serve hot.
