A recipe for green rice
  • 1 celery stick, chopped
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 20g fresh parsley leaves
  • 15ml fresh oregano
  • 10g fresh coriander leaves, chopped
  • 625ml vegetable stock
  • 30ml olive oil
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 250ml long grain white rice
  • salt
  • 3 green chillies, seeded and chopped
  • 5g fresh mint leaves, chopped
  1. Place the chopped celery, garlic, parsley leaves, oregano and halve of the coriander leaves with 125ml vegetable stock in a small saucepan. Bring to the boil and simmer for 5 minutes.
  2. Process the herb mixture in a food processor.
  3. Heat the oil in a thick-bottomed pot on high heat. Add the rice and chopped onions and stir to coat all the rice grains with oil. Let the rice and the onion brown. Stir the mixture so that more of the rice browns.
  4. Once most of the rice is browned add the herb mixture with the rest of the vegetable stock. Season the rice with salt. Bring the rice to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 20 minutes.
  5. Turn the heat off and add the chopped green chillies, mint and the remaining fresh coriander. Fluff with a fork and stand (covered) for 10 minutes. Serve as a side dish or as a main dish
