Cubanelle Pepper Rice Pilaf

Cubanelle Pepper Rice Pilaf

Rice pilaf is a delicious side dish that easily pairs with a variety of main dishes. We've added the tasty, sweet flavor of cubanelle peppers to this classic recipe. Try roasting the peppers first for an added layer of flavor!




2 tablespoons butter or oil

1/2 onion (we used yellow), chopped

2 large or 4 small cubanelle peppers or bell peppers, seeded and chopped

1 cup long-grain white rice

2 cups chicken or vegetable broth

1/2 cup chopped cilantro



Melt the butter or heat the oil in a medium-sized pot over medium heat. Add the onion and cubanelle peppers and saute until tender, about five minutes.

Add the rice and stir to coat with butter, approximately one minute. Pour in the broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and cover the pot. Simmer about 25 minutes, or until the broth is absorbed.

Stir in the chopped cilantro, mix to combine and serve.
