To coincide with the rice experiment that took place at The Jeavons Center Mini-Farm this year, we include a traditional Nigerian rice dish:
1 c long grain brown rice
2 tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp curry powder
1 tsp black pepper
1 small red onion,
2–3 c chicken or vegetable stock
1/4 c fresh red bell pepper, chopped
1/2 c green peas
Salt to taste
In a 4-quart saucepan, combine the stock, turmeric powder, curry powder and black pepper. Bring to a boil.
Add the rice and salt. Cover and cook on low.
After 35–40 minutes, test for doneness. Rice should hold its shape, but mash easily between your fingers. If it's still firm, add a bit more stock.
Add the red pepper, onions and green peas to the top of the rice. Cover and continue cooking.
The rice is done when all the stock has been absorbed and rice mashes easily.
Stir to combine the vegetables and rice.
