Wicklewood’s Aztec Rice

25 mins (prep 5, cooking 20)

I love the crunch of the vegetables in this rice dish. Water or stock can be used as long as it is boiling, adding turmeric or saffron to the liquid will turn the rice a beautiful golden colour and with the inclusion of South American vegetables such as sweet corn and peppers the result is a dish that looks like jewel encrusted Aztec gold.. Don’t be tempted to remove the lid while cooking as the steam needs to build up to fluff up the grains. Delicious with chili, chicken or fish dishes, try swapping the peppers for peas or diced carrot.Times only apply to white rice,,for brown or wild rice add another 30mins.
