Prasorizo - Rice With Leeks
A wholesome Vegetarian dish made with a handful of basic ingredients. Fresh and delicious it can also be served as side dish (goes amazing with chicken!).
Servings: 2 bowls
- 7 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- 1 leek about 250-300 grams green parts removed + cut into chunky slices
- 2 small spring onions chopped in slices
- ½ red onion finely chopped
- 3 garlic cloves chopped in slices
- ⅓ cup short-grain rice
- ½ cup long-grain rice
- 1 tablespoon chopped dill
- 1 lemon zest + juice
- freshly ground pepper
- kosher salt
Heat olive oil in a cooking pot over high heat. Then reduce heat to medium and add the red onion. Cook until softened and golden in color.
Add the spring onions, the garlic, and leeks. Cook for 2-3 minutes more, stirring occasionally until slightly softened. Season with kosher salt and add 2 cups of water. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer covered for 20 minutes.
Add 3 cups hot water (you may use vegetable stock instead) and the short-grain rice. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes more.
Add the long-grain rice and simmer covered for 20 minutes more or until the rice is cooked.
Towards the last 5 minutes of simmering, add the dill, lemon juice, and zest and a generous sprinkle of freshly ground pepper.
Serve with extra pepper and dill on top.
