Red Bell Peppers and Rice
Colorful, flavorful red bell peppers add vibrancy and appeal to any dish. And when you consider that they’re high in vitamins A and C, potassium and fiber, you’d be wise to include them in a variety of creative recipes. They blend well with corn and onions for a yummy southwestern salad, or bake them into a light quiche for an added taste sensation. In this instance, we’ve made red bell peppers a key component of the special rice recipe below.
3 tbsp food grade shea butter or vegetable oil
1 large red onion, chopped
1 red bell pepper, seeded, chopped
½ cup peas
2⅓ cups long-grain white rice
1 tsp chili powder
3¾ cups low-salt chicken broth
½ cup chopped fresh cilantro
▫ Melt the butter in a large pot, over medium heat.
▫ Add onion, pepper and peas, then sauté for 12 minutes.
▫ Add rice, cumin and chili powder, then stir for one minute.
▫ Mix in broth and bring it to a boil.
▫ Cover the pot and lower your heat to medium low and simmer for about 25 minutes until the rice is tender and the broth reduced.
▫ Season with salt and pepper, then sprinkle with cilantro.
