What side can we make for our meal tonight? So often, we can get in the habit of eating the same food over and over again. I do too and typically eat the same meals every 2-3 weeks. So how can we give ourselves a little variety and spice it up? Sounds nice doesn’t it?
That’s where this rice side dish recipe comes in for the win. It’s a no fuss kind of meal. As the majority of the cooking is in a rice cooker.
Let’s be honest, life can be complicated. And our meals don’t need to be complicated. With all of our dishes, let’s keep it simple. Am I right?
For this side dish, we are going to sauté our onions and garlic in a pan on medium heat. Then, add all of the ingredients into a rice cooker and let it cook.
While the rice is cooking, you can roast cashews in a skillet. For that, heat a pan on medium heat. Add in your cashews and stir occasionally for a few minutes before removing from the heat. Set aside.
In a mixing bowl, add the cooked rice, chopped bell peppers, raisins, and coriander. Mix until combined.
When ready to serve, top with the roasted cashews and enjoy! It doesn’t take much time to make this rice side dish recipe and that’s the beauty of it.
With most meals, I like having leftovers so that I have extras for another meal later in the week. This allows us not to spend so much time in the kitchen.
