|1 cup||long grain jasmine rice||$0.87|
|1/2 cup||thai peanut sauce||$0.22|
|1/2 cup||frozen sweet peas||$0.27|
|1 medium||red bell pepper||$1.50|
STEP 1: In a medium sauce pan bring 1 cup of jasmine rice and two cups of water to a boil over high heat with a lid in place. As soon as it reaches a rolling boil, reduce the heat to warm and let simmer for 30-40 minutes (with the lid in place) or until all of the water has absorbed.
STEP 2: While the rice cooks, finely dice the red bell pepper. When the rice has finished cooking, mix in the peanut sauce, peas and red bell pepper. I would suggest putting all of the ingredients into the pot with the rice and then stirring only once because the more times you stir, the more sticky and glutenous the rice will become.
STEP 3: Serve warm. If desired, you can garnish with fresh cilantro, green onions or a drizzle of sesame oil (as pictured).
NOTE: Be sure when you are buying your jasmine rice that you get long grain jasmine rice because short or medium grain varieties will be too sticky. If you try to stir the peanut sauce and vegetables into a short grain rice you might end up with a starchy ball of rice dough!
