Vegetarian Rice Recipe

This is a vegetarian rice recipe that I found. Definitely a way to make it more exciting.
I found the recipe from this website.


  • 1/2 c. Rice
  • 3 c. Water
  • 1 tsp salt per cup of rice
  • 1/8 tsp Mexican saffron
  • 2 tbs oil or ghee
  • 1 tbs raisins


Boil the water.
In the meantime, wash the rice (3 times if possible). In a frying pan, heat the oil, salt, and rice.

Sauteeing the uncooked rice will bring it to the same temperature as the water, so boiling will not stop once the rice is added.

Once water is boiling, add saffron and raisins. Let the raisins boil so that they get plump and juicy.

Add the rice. If you've done things right, the water should keep boiling. Continue to boil it for a while; let it steam until the rice begins to come to the top. Then turn the flame low and let it cook for 12 minutes.

** Note Mexican saffron is somehow different from regular saffron, so make sure you use the right kind.

    Yes, quesadilla with mouth watering melted cheese is the perfect appetizer for me too. It will be very yummy if the quesadilla is served with mushroom. Too bad too many cheese is a threat to the waist
