Confetti Rice

  • Serves 2
  • Easy




Upgrade your rice by adding vegetables!

One thing that I always have on hand are frozen vegetables. They are so versatile and cheap!

So one day I asked myself, why do I always cook the vegetables separate from my rice?

This one pot, confetti rice is not only easy but great for meal prep as well!

Serve it along side some fish, chicken or anything else you like.

I like using any kind of vegetable medley and the most common and colorful is this corn, carrot, pea and green bean mix!





Toast The Caraway Seeds & Rice

Heat a sauce pan on high heat and add 1 teaspoon of olive oil.

Once the oil is hot, add the caraway seeds. Stir and toast until fragrant, about 1 minute.

Next, add the rice and stir and toast for another minute.


Add The Water and Simmer

Add cold water to the toasted rice and caraway seeds then cover the pot.

Immediately, lower the heat to medium-low and simmer for 10-15 minutes or until all of the water has been absorbed.


Fluff The Rice and Add the Vegetables

Uncover the pot then turn off the heat.

Using a fork, fluff the rice then season with salt.

Lastly, add the frozen and thawed vegetables and fluff again.

Allow the hot steam to heat through the vegetables then serve or store in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
