Rice Pilaf with Sun-Dried Tomatoes

(Kurutulmuş Domatesli Pirinç Pilavı)

Rice Pilaf with Sun-Dried Tomatoes
3/4 cup long-grain rice, washed, drained
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 tbsp butter or 4-5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
4-5 sun-dried tomatoes, in oil, chopped
1/2 cup carrot, grated
1-2 garlic cloves, minced
1 cup hot chicken broth
2 tbsp currants
2 tbsp pistachios

Saute the onion with butter in a pot for 3-4 minutes. Add in the rice, sun-dried tomatoes, carrots, garlic, salt and pepper and continue to saute for 3-4 more minutes. Then, add the currants, pistachios and chicken broth into the pot. Cover, turn the heat to low and cook until the rice absorbs all the water.

Remove the cooking pot from the heat. Open the lid, place a clean kitchen towel across the top of the pot on the rim, and cover. Let the Pilaf stand for about 5 minutes.

2 servings.
