Yellow Rice and Peas

A few years ago someone brought us dinner when a baby was born. She had made the most flavorful rice! It added to the meal so much. I asked her for her recipe. “Oh, I added this and that,” she stated. When people say that I am not sure if they are hiding their recipes from others to keep them secret or if they are really just so talented they can add this and that. I decided to give it a try. I added this and that to many rice dishes (of course I took notes!) and came up with a few combinations that our family loves. This is one that is super easy, yet it looks like I used a lot of effort to get a colorful and flavorful side dish.

  • 2 ½ cups Water
  • ½ teaspoon Ground Turmeric
  • 2 teaspoons Italian Seasoning
  • 1 Tablespoon Dehydrated Onion
  • 1 cup Rice
  • 2 teaspoons Chicken Bouillon Paste*
  • 1 cup Freeze Dried Peas**
Place water, turmeric, italian seasoning, onion, rice and bouillon in a medium sauce pan. Bring to boil; cover. Simmer 15 minutes. Stir in peas; cover. Cook 10 minutes or until rice is tender.
*2 chicken bouillon cubes may be used.
**1 cup frozen peas may be used
I do not always use freeze dried vegetables. Freeze dried vegetables will store up to 25 years! I store enough to have my year supply and then I rotate my meals with fresh, frozen or canned. Freeze Dried Peas are one of the freeze dried foods that I have easily found on sale often though and so I use them on a regular basis.
