How to Make Rice for Fancy Reception

A Unique Festive Rice

Get Ready to be Amazed!

CK Veggie Rice

This particular rice dish has been a total success on my table. A recipe I have learned from my mother, it has been always requested from me by my guests. It is a rice I cooked for special occasions, but also for a cozy family meal when my children ask for it.

The Festive Veggie Rice can compliment and enhance any main dish of poultry or meat, and even a vegetarian one.

The Recipe: Get Ready to be Amazed!

Veggie RiceThe rice is cooked in water seasoned with vegetable stock cubes. We then incorporate green peas, corn, butter-fried onions and ham/turkey, and half of a rich creamy dressing.

The other half is drizzled on upon serving and topped with fresh chopped parsley and fried crispy pieces of ham.

The dressing is made of unsweetened condensed milk, mustard, mayo, and chopped hard-boiled eggs, resulting in a most delicious creamy dressing that makes all the difference in this dish.

Enjoy it! Life is Good!

  1. In a deep casserole, over high heat, bring the water and Vegetable cubes to a boil.
  2. Add the rice and 1 tsp of butter, and mix well. When it starts boiling, reduce the heat and leave it to simmer for about 20 minutes or until the water dries off.
  3. Meanwhile, in a separate fry-pan, melt 1 tsp of butter and fry in the onions to crispiness. Remove the onions onto a side plate.
  4. In the same butter, fry the chopped ham (or Turkey). Remove aside 2 tbsp of the fried ham to garnish later, and add the remaining to the onions.
  5. Prepare the dressing by mixing all its ingredients, and set aside.
  6. When the rice is cooked, remove from heat, and stir in the fried onions and ham, 1/2 the dressing then gently the green peas and the corn. Make sure all is well blend without mashing the green peas and corn.
  7. Optional: Transfer the rice into a buttered mold, press well but gently, then turn it upside down into a serving plate.
  8. Once your rice is on the serving plate, whatever option you opted for, drizzle on the other 1/2 of the dressing.
