You will love how easy this is to make and the rice flavors it has.


– long grain rice – olive oil – vermicelli pasta – boiling water – pine nuts – coarse salt 

Rinse the rice in a colander under cold water until the water runs clear. Set it to the side. Next, add the oil to a large, non-stick pot over medium heat.

Add in the pasta and frequently stir until it becomes a light golden brown. Keep a close eye on this, as it can go from browned to burnt quickly.

Pour in the rice and stir and cook for 1 to 2 minutes. Add in the boiling water, season with salt, and stir to combine.

Place a lid on the pot and simmer over low heat for 14-16 minutes or until the rice is tender.

Using a fork, fluff the rice and set it to the side uncovered for 5 minutes before serving.
