2 cups long grain rice
2 Tablespoons oil
1 cup mixed vegetables (like carrots, celery, sweet red peppers, green peas), finely chopped
Salt and pepper, to taste
4 cups chicken stock
Heat the oil in a heavy saucepan and add rice.
Sauté lightly until the rice has absorbed the oil, being careful not to let it change color.
Add the mixed vegetables, salt, pepper, and chicken stock.
Bring to a boil, cover, and reduce heat to low.
Cool for about 20 minutes until rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed.
Serves 6 to 8.
salt and pepper
While that's marinating you can chop your cilantro. You want to chop your cilantro right before you add it.
