 Ingredients List

  • 1/4 c Olive oil
  • 1 1/4 c Long-grain brown rice
  • 1 lg Onion; peeled and sliced
  • 2 lg Garlic cloves; crushed
  • 1 pn Saffron strands
  • 3 c Light Vegetable Stock
  • -(generous measure) OR water
  • 1/2 Lemon; thinly pared rind,
  • - cut into thin shreds
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 lb Washed and trimmed leeks
  • - cut into 1-inch lengths
  • 1/4 c Frozen peas
  • 1/4 c Black olives, or more


Parsley; chopped

Heat the oil in a large, deep pan. Add the long-grain brown rice and onion
slices and stir until the rice is coated and begins to turn opaque. Add the
garlic, saffron, stock or wate, lemon rind and salt and pepper. Mix well,
then bring to a boil. Mix again, to distribute the saffron coloring.
Arrange the vegetables and olives attractively on top of the rice. Bring to
a boil. Cover with a lid or foil and simmer for 45 minutes. Sprinkle with
parsley and serve straight from the pan. May be served with blanched
almonds, slivered Brazil nuts or whole cashew nuts- separately, in a bowl -
for people to help themselves to if they like. Variation: VEGETARIAN PAELLA
WITH ARTICHOKES: Use 4 to 6 globe artichokes instead of the leeks. Very
tender baby artichokes can simply be quartered; otherwise cut the leaves
and choke from the artichokes, then halve or quarter the artichoke bottoms.
Garnish with artichoke leaves.
