Rice pilaf with tomatoes

Rice pilaf with tomatoes

We clean the vegetables and wash them.

We then pass them through the robot (onion and pepper first).

Heat these vegetables in oil, add the chopped carrot to the robot and the spices (salt, pepper and dried basil). Let it boil for about 15 minutes.

Add the tomatoes given on a grater or passed through a food processor and let it boil covered, another 15 minutes on the right heat.

Wash the rice and add it to the pan. Put a cup of water (I put it twice) and mix quite often, until the rice boils (about 20 min.)

At the end we sprinkled chopped green parsley.

Good appetite!


Bulgur pilaf ingredient

  • 300 grams of fine bulgur
  • 600 ml. of chicken or vegetable soup
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 60 grams of butter
  • 1 medium-sized onion (80 grams), chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 medium-sized carrot (100 grams), cut into small cubes
  • 1 large tomato, well cooked, peeled and grated on a large grater or 1 tablespoon of concentrated tomato paste
  • 2 tablespoons baked pepper paste or 1 red roasted pepper, peeled and finely chopped
  • 1-2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • optional: ½ teaspoon grated cumin
  • optional: ½ teaspoon grated dried hot pepper flakes (biber pulp)
  • salt, pepper to taste
  • large chopped green parsley, sprinkled at the end

How to prepare bulgur pilaf

1. Put the bulgur in a sieve and rinse it quickly under running cold water. We let it drain well and drain it.

2. For our bulgur pilaf, it is good to choose a pan with a thick bottom. I use a non-stick pan, it is helpful for such dishes. Heat the pan over medium-high heat and add the olive oil. When the oil is hot, add the butter to melt. Where you can use ghee (clarified butter), no more oil needed.

3. Once the butter has melted, add the chopped onion, garlic and carrot to the pan in which we will prepare our bulgur pilaf. Add 1 pinch of salt, mix and sauté the vegetables over low heat for about 7-8 minutes, until the onion softens well (becomes translucent).

4. After the vegetables have softened, add the peeled and grated tomato on a grater or 1 tablespoon of concentrated tomato paste. Also now add the pepper paste or 1 baked red pepper, chopped with a knife. Mix well and, optionally, add the hot pepper flakes and cumin (if using).

5. Immediately add the chicken or hot vegetable soup. As a last resort, we can prepare our bulgur pilaf with water, but obviously it will not be exactly the same. A basic soup can be easily prepared at home, from the cheapest ingredients, as I explained here.

6. In the liquid in which we will cook our bulgur pilaf, add 1-2 tablespoons of lemon juice, then season it with salt and pepper to taste.

Bulgur cooking

7. Add the bulgur to the liquid base, all at once. Cover the pan with the lid, leaving a little room for the steam to come out, and cook for 5 minutes over medium heat.

8. After the first 5 minutes, reduce the heat to a minimum, cover the pan well with the lid and let the bulgur simmer for another 7-10 minutes, until all the liquid in the pan is absorbed. We also check the indications on the package, the bulgur may need 12 to 15 minutes of cooking. If we look closely at our bulgur pilaf, we will notice on the surface some holes through which the steam comes out. That's what it should look like when it's ready. Turn off the heat, put the lid on and let the pilaf rest for 5 minutes.

SERVE

9. Before serving, loosen our bulgur pilaf with a fork. It unfolds nicely grain by grain, it will not be sticky at all. We present the pilaf on the table either in a casserole or on a plate that we arrange with volume. Let's not forget to sprinkle it with green parsley, chopped large, before offering it to diners. This bulgur pilaf is served hot, as a side dish to all kinds of meat dishes or just with cooked or grilled vegetables. I joined him to some Juicy skewers of chicken and vegetables, I also made a yogurt sauce with garlic and it was a delight!

How to prepare rice pilaf with dehydrated tomatoes and asparagus in brine!

Let the rice simmer over medium heat, and when it is almost completely hydrated, add a pinch of salt, thyme and pepper, the dehydrated tomatoes, cut into smaller pieces and lightly drowned in the oil in which they were preserved.

It is very fragrant that oil in which the tomatoes were dehydrated and it is a pity not to take advantage of its taste, so we will leave the tomatoes well greased, as long as oil is taken on them, we will not drain them.

Add 2 sprigs of rosemary, broken basil leaves and asparagus cut into small sticks.

Lightly mix all these ingredients, among the rice and leave it on the fire until it is well prepared, we will taste it from time to time to realize.

After extinguishing the fire, add the chopped parsley and grated Parmesan cheese and mix them lightly in the pilaf.

I like the pilaf to be colorful, so I often put various vegetables for a nice color.

This time I limited myself to dehydrated tomatoes and asparagus, because I wanted their taste to predominate in it.

We served this rice pilaf with dehydrated tomatoes and asparagus in brine, with the cans listed in the list of ingredients, each according to preference.


Spinach dish with rice and fresh tomatoes

It's fresh spinach time. Fortunately! Because especially now, at the beginning of spring, we really need an infusion of fresh green and as many vitamins as possible.

Spinach is an old-fashioned food, not a last-minute invention. I think all housewives do it, one way or another. I just wanted to show you my version, with rice, sweet and sour due to the fresh tomatoes and flavored with a fine nutmeg powder. You can give up the nutmeg if you don't have it at hand or you don't like it (like, you don't like the nutmeg.). Let's face it, simple boiled spinach is not exactly who knows what, that's why it needs fresh tomato cubes (ok, they can be canned, especially if it's homemade canned), which will give it a little taste. fresh-sour.

How to prepare pilaf

1. Prepare the ingredients and sauté the onion

Prepare everything before you start cooking, because as soon as you start cooking, you can't stop it: the rice will absorb the liquid even if it is taken off the heat and will form a paste with an unpleasant taste. Boil the softening liquid (twice the volume of the rice). Cut the onion into rice-sized cubes and harden to soften at the end of cooking. Do not let it brown, it should soften with the rice when it is ready.

2. Pearl and add liquid

Simmer the rice over low heat, without letting it stick (if it sticks, the starch forms a crust and the rice boils harder). The volume of the boiling liquid, which is added later, must be twice the volume of the rice. Put a garni bouquet (bouquet with thyme, bay leaf and parsley, tied with string and lowered together in the boiling pot), which will give flavor to the boiling liquid.

3. Bring the rice to a boil

Boil the rice at 180 degrees for 16-20 minutes in the oven with the lid on. To know if it's done, taste it. Be careful not to mix, because the starch will dissolve in the remaining water and will form a kind of glue that will make the rice pasty.

4. Let the rice rest

Rest allows the rice to completely absorb the liquid without breaking down. Leave it on the corner of the table, well covered it will stay warm and will absorb all the boiling liquid without becoming pasty.

5. Add butter and separate the rice

This operation helps to separate the glued grains and gives a little smoothness to the rice. Place thin slices of butter on the surface of the rice and mix with the special roasting fork.
Master chef's advice: for a good pilaf, use an aromatic liquid according to the chosen recipe: a white poultry stock to accompany the poultry, a fish stock for the fish fillets.
Master chef's trick: if the lid you use when cooking rice in the oven does not close the pot tightly, put a parchment paper parchment over the rice, under the lid, so the evaporation of the liquid will slow down and a perfectly made and very good rice will come out. soft.
