Spicy Mince and Risoni Pilaf is a simple and easy dinner recipe I decided to share with you today. Aren’t we always on the lookout for those?
A pilaf is originally rice cooked in a spicy broth, like chicken or vegetable stock with spices, and mixed with finely chopped cooked onion or other vegetables.
For my pilaf I decided to use pasta rice. It is a small grain like pasta and actually looks a bit like rice. It doubles in volume, and cooked in a delicious spicy vegetable stock, it ends up being flavoursome and mouthwatering. I added spicy cooked mince, with garlic, onion, green pepper and fresh basil.
Brighten it up by adding chopped carrots or celery, and serve it with a dollop of sour cream or sweet chutney.
t really is as easy as that! Mince is such a versatile ingredient – I am sure all of you reading this have minced beef in the freezer. An easy and fuss free recipe, that you can tweak and change to your liking! Enjoy!
