You will Need: 

200g Long Grain Rice

 Rinse the rice in cold water until you've washed away all the starch

Place in a sauce pan with all the ingredients apart from the peas & beans

Season, and cook on a high heat. 

When it starts to boil, turn to a more medium heat, cover and simmer for 15 minutes

Add the peas and beans to the rice, take off the heat and allow to thicken. 

Serve with your chicken stew, and take a break to the sunshine!

I was asked to create some recipes using products from Grace Foods & Dunn River.  I received no compensation for my reviews, or recipes - just getting to work and know new products!
