Hushway

This Middle Eastern dish literally translates to “stuffing.”  It’s what my mom stuffs our Thanksgiving turkey with – minus the peas.  It’s super easy to make and really gives you the feeling that you’re eating something exotic.

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 lb. – 1  1/2  lbs. ground beef
  • 1 cup uncooked white basmati rice
  • 2 cups frozen peas
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp nutmeg
  • Salt and pepper to taste

HOW TO MAKE IT

  • In a medium pan, season the ground beef with the cinnamon, nutmeg, salt and pepper and then brown it
  • Once the meat is cooked, add 2 cups of water to the pan and stir
  • Bring the water to a boil and add the frozen peas and mix
  • Bring the water to a boil again and add in the rice and stir
  • Lower the heat on the stove to low and cover the pot
  • Keep stirring the rice often so it doesn’t stick to the bottom of the pan
  • Cook for 20-30 minutes or until the rice is tender

*Try topping this rice with cool plain yogurt – it’s not only a refreshing combination, but it also hits all of the food groups!
