Herbed Rice and Peas
  • 2 cups cooked rice (I used basmati)
  • 1 cup of frozen peas, steamed
  • ½ cup diced onion
  • olive oil for sauteing (omit if steam sauteeing)
  • 2 - 3 tablespoons of butter or vegan spread
  • 1 tablespoon fresh herbs OR 2 teaspoons dried herbs OR 1 teaspoon spice/spice mix (I used a mix of fresh thyme and parsley)
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Use a large skillet to saute the onions in a little olive oil while the peas are steaming in the microwave.
  2. Melt the butter and your choice of herbs and spices in the same skillet.
  3. Mix in the peas and the rice and stir well to distribute the herbs evenly throughout. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. Continue to heat until the rice is warmed through.
  5. Taste and adjust the seasonings before serving.
