Spice Up Your Meals With Artichoke Aubergine Rice


For the artichoke aubergine rice you will need 400 g paella rice, 2 aubergines, 2 teaspoons smoked paprika, 60 ml olive oil, 1 finely chopped large onion, 2 teaspoons turmeric, 2 crushed garlic cloves, 1 1/2 l vegetable stock, a small pack parsley, 2 x 175 g packs chargrilled artichokes, 2 lemons. The parsley needs to be finely chopped, and the aubergines cut into chunks. Squeeze the juice of one of the lemons, and cut the other one into wedges.


Get a frying pan and cook the aubergines with 2 tablespoons oil. When you’re done, cook the onions with one tablespoon oil for 3 minutes. Include the garlic and parsley. Continue cooking for several minutes, then add the paprika and turmeric. Add the rice as well and continue cooking for 2 minutes. You can now pour half of the stock, cook for 20 minutes while also stirring from time to time.

Include the artichokes, aubergine and the other half of the stock. Continue cooking for 20 minutes and check if the artichoke aubergine rice is done. If it tastes good you can finish off with the lemon juice, salt, pepper and parsley.

Ingredients: 2 onions, 4 medium sized artichokes, 2 full tbsp pine nuts, 1 glass baldo rice, lemon zest, dried mint, salt, ground black pepper, dill, scallion, extra virgin olive oil. . Direction: Add a coffeespoon of salt into the rice and boil the rice with hot water. Once the water gets cold, rinse the rice and let it sit in the strainer. Chop the onions finely and saute them with olive oil in a pan until soft (you do not need them to be caramelized). Stir in the pine nuts and saute on low heat for 2-3 minutes more. Add artichokes (cut each artichoke into six pieces), lemon zest then season with two coffeespoons of mint. Add salt to taste. Saute for about two more minutes. Add the rice next and saute it carefully for about two minutes. Finally, pour 1.5 glasses of hot water (you may need more according your rice type). When it starts boiling, reduce the heat to low and let the dish simmer until all water is absorbed. Place a clean kitchen towel over the pot then put the lid on it. Allow the rice to cool down to room temperature. Add freshly ground black pepper, finely chopped scallions and dill (salt too if necessary), mix with a wooden spoon once before transferring the rice in the serving plate. . #artichoke #rice #reis #artischocken #enginar #enginarlıpilav #pilav #pilaf #translatedrecipes #food #foodie #vegetables #vegetarian #vegetarianrecipes #vegan #veganrecipes #meatfree #instafood #artichokerice #oliveoil #zeytinyağlı
