Brown Basmati Rice With Peas Recipe

Makes 3 cups: ¹/₂ cup serving size.


➠1¹/₂ cups Brown Basmati rice
➠²/₃ cup green peas (frozen)
➠¹/₄ cup thinly sliced white onion
➠1 tbsp cumin seeds
➠2 ³/₄ cups water (little less than twice the rice amount)
➠2 tbsp cooking oil preferably Extra virgin olive oil (EVOO)
➠1 tsp Salt (to taste)


Wash and soak rice for approximately 30 minutes to speed up cooking time. Re-use this water for any possible leached out fiber, vitamins, and minerals.

Heat the cooking oil in a pan. Add thinly sliced onion and cumin seeds. Stir for one minute or until onions slightly soften. Add water, peas and close lid bringing contents to a boil. Stir in the rice, cover and bring to boil, 3-5 minutes.

Stir, cover and reduce heat to low. Cook for 15-20 minutes until all the liquid is absorbed and rice is cooked. Don’t stir during cooking, as the rice will become mushy. Turn off heat, and leave rice covered for additional 5-10 minutes. Fluff with a fork and serve.

Store leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4 days.
