Directions

  1. Make the rice (according to the directions on the package) in an extra-large pot.
  2. While the rice is cooking, sauté the yellow pepper, onion, mushrooms, garlic, currants, sun-dried tomatoes and the olive oil until golden brown.
  3. Be sure to use an extra-large skillet and medium to medium-high heat.
  4. When vegetables are finished, add them (along with the chopped fresh mint and dill) to the cooked rice and gently stir together until mixed evenly.
  5. To give this dish an added "punch" of flavor, substitute vegetable or chicken broth for water when making the rice.
