Description

I love the flavor of the toasted spices and chocolate in this recipe, not to mention the bacon. Delicious!

Ingredients

  • 1 Tablespoon Sesame Seeds
  • 1 teaspoon Dried Oregano
  • ½ teaspoons Cumin
  • ¼ teaspoons Allspice
  • 3 strips Bacon
  • 1  Red Pepper (or Color Of Your Choice) Chopped
  • 1  Onion, Chopped
  • 3 cloves Garlic, Minced
  • 1 pinch Red Pepper Flakes
  • 2 cups Mushrooms, Sliced
  • 2-½ cups Chicken Broth
  • 6 ounces, weight Tomato Paste
  • 1 ounce, weight Semi-sweet Chocolate, Chopped
  • 1 cup Rice, Uncooked
  • Salt And Pepper
  • Green Onions, Chopped For Garnish
  • Fresh Parsley Chopped For Garnish

Preparation

Toast/cook sesame seeds, oregano, cumin and allspice in a skillet over medium heat for 30-35 seconds. Set aside.

Cook bacon and set aside. To the same skillet with bacon drippings, sauté red pepper, onion, garlic and red pepper flakes with a pinch of salt and pepper until softened. Add mushrooms and cook until soft.

Increase heat to high and add chicken broth, tomato paste, chocolate and toasted spice mixture. Bring to a boil; add rice and reduce heat to low. Cover and cook till tender and liquid is absorbed, 30-35 minutes. Stir rice after 15-20 minutes to make sure it’s not sticking and has enough liquid left to cook completely. Add more stock or water if needed.

Once rice is tender, turn off heat and let stand for 5 minutes. Stir in chopped bacon; check for seasoning, adding salt and pepper if needed.

To serve, top with chopped green onions and parsley.

Excellent flavor! I thought the mushrooms were a random idea, but they totally worked in this. The only snag I hit was the rice didn’t get completely soft; think it might have something to do with the tomato paste, so next time -and there WILL be a next time!- I’ll add it at the end when the rice is done.

This is pretty simple to make and it’s basically ingredients I always have on hand. It was great with chicken!
