Sometimes simple tastes so good. I’ve been missing rice for a while. Peas too, been missing them. The fresh tomato add-on creates a juicy component to this simple rice. Nice!
Makes 7 cups
2 T. extra virgin olive oil
1/2 lg. sweet onion, peeled and diced
1 green pepper, cored and cut into bite size chunks
salt and pepper to taste
3 c. leftover long grain rice
1 fresh tomato cut into bite size
12 oz. bag froz. peas, thawed thoroughly
1-2 veggie hot dogs, cooked and sliced into rounds
In extra-large skillet, over medium heat, melt olive oil.
Add onion and pepper, stir to coat with oil then salt and pepper to taste. Saute till nearly tender as you like.
Add rice all at once, top with tomato, peas and hot dog slices. Stir well to coat all grains with oil.
Continue to cook till heated through. Salt and pepper to taste again, then serve or reserve for service later.
Notes: I like to char my veggies a little; do yours as you like.
The hot dog is optional. I happened to have a Field Roast Frankfurter leftover from last night.
