Easy Biryani Rice with lots of Veggies

  • 3 cups of cooked Basmati Rice
  • 1 Tbsp coconut oil
  • 1/2 a large yellow onion
  • 1/2 cup potato chunks
  • 1/2 cup slice carrots
  • 1/2 cup peas
  • 1/3 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup cauliflower pieces
  • 1/2 red bell pepper
  • 2 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp whole cumin seeds
  • 1 tsp whole coriander seeds
  • 1 1/4 cup vegetable broth

Directions: Make the rice by following the instructions of the packaging. While the rice is cooking, melt the coconut oil in a large sauce pan over medium-high heat. Add the onion and let cook, stirring occasionally, for about 5 minutes. Add the potatoes and cook until they are soft. Add the carrots, peas, raisins, cauliflower pieces, and bell pepper. Cook and stir frequently for about 5 to 8 more minutes. Add the spices and mix in with the vegetables. Cover and let cook for about four minutes. Add the vegetable broth to the pan and stir. Raise heat to high and cook uncovered until the water has began to evaporate. Add the rice and stir it in to mix with the vegetables. Divide the mixture into serving plates and add sea salt and pepper to taste. You can top the rice with sliced almonds, cashews and even coconut flakes. Enjoy!
