One Pot Greek Style Rice


Who doesn't love.a one pot meal? Just throw ingredients in a pot, put the lid on and have an entire meal waiting for you when it's done! In the cooler months I tend to make one pot meals more and more. This time I wanted a rice dish but I wanted it to have lots of flavor so I opted for a Greek style rice dish. I used tons of Greek seasoning which is full of herbs and spices like onion, basil, oregano and pepper to name a few. Whenever I use seasoning blends or vegetable broth I like to add additional salt to taste at the end. Lot's of seasoning blends and broths already contain salt so be mindful when using them.

Cook Time: 30 Minutes

Serves About 6


Ingredients

  • 1 cup of yellow onion chopped

  • 3 medium size garlic cloves minced

  • 2 fresh thyme sprigs

  • 1 zucchini sliced

  • 1 red bell pepper chopped

  • 1 green bell pepper chopped

  • 8-10 oz of mushrooms sliced

  • 2 cups of uncooked rice (I love using Basmati rice)

  • 4 cups of veggie broth or stock (I used the 365 Whole Foods Brand)

  • 4 tbs of extra virgin olive oil

  • 2 tbs of vegan butter

  • 1 tbs of Greek seasoning

  • salt to taste

  • pepper to taste

  • 1/4 cup of fresh parsley chopped

Preparation

  1. Place a large braising pan or pot with a lid over medium heat and add in the oil, onions a thyme.

  2. Cook for 4-5 minutes stirring occasionally until the onions start to become tender.

  3. Add in the garlic, peppers, mushrooms and cook for an additional 5 minutes.

  4. Pour in the rice, vegetable broth and 1/2 tsp of salt.

  5. Bring the pan up to a boil while stirring . Once it begins to boil reduce the heat to medium low and place a lid on the pan.

  6. Cook for about 20 minutes making sure to stir once or twice while cooking.

  7. After 15-20 minutes remove from heat

  8. Take off the lid, remove the thyme sprigs and add on the vegan butter, a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and the greek seasoning and stir.

  9. Add salt and pepper to taste and stir in the parsley.

Tip: I love using an enamel cast iron braising pan or Dutch oven with a lid to cook one pot dishes. These are super heavy high quality pans. Many of them are known to last a lifetime. I have several of them and they are what I cook with almost every day. They come in all sizes and depths I love the Le Crueset brand but they can be pretty expensive so I also use other brands. I'm using a Lodge Braising Pan.
