Serves: 6 people

Recipe Ingredients

1 lb 454g / 16ozLong-grain white rice
1/4 cup 49g / 1.7ozUnsalted butter
1/2   White onion - finely chopped
1/2   Red bell pepper - cut 1/4" dice
2 teaspoons 10mlGround cumin
1/2 teaspoon 2.5mlSavoy cabbage - core removed, (small) and thinly sliced
4   Ripe plum tomatoes - peeled, seeded, and coarsely chopped
4 cups 948mlWater
3/4 teaspoon 3.8mlSalt
4   Green onions, light, dark green parts only - finely sliced

Recipe Instructions

Wash rice and drain. In a large heavy saucepan heat the butter over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring occasionally, for 3 to 4 minutes, or until just beginning to soften. Add rice, red pepper and the cumin and stir together for 2 minutes. Add the cabbage and tomato and cook for 3 minutes more, or until the mixture is thickened.

Add the water and salt, increase the heat to medium-high and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat a little so that the liquid is simmering actively. Stir every minute or 2 until the rice is almost dry, then reduce the heat to very low, and stir in the green onion. Cover tightly, reduce the heat to low, and cook for 5 minutes more.
