INGREDIENTS

  • 1 14-oz can diced tomatoes, strained (juice reserved)
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1 onion, minced
  • ¾ cup Longève Unseasoned Plant-Based Protein Crumbles
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • ½ red bell pepper, seeded and diced small
  • ½ green bell pepper, seeded and diced small
  • 1 Tbsp. adobo seasoning*
  • 1 ½ cups long-grain white rice
  • ¼ cup frozen green peas, thawed
  • ¾ cup pimento-stuffed Manzanilla olives, chopped
  • ½ cup minced fresh cilantro, parsley or a combination

INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Place strained tomato juice in a 4-cup measuring cup. Add water to fill to 3 cups and set aside.
  2. Place a heavy-bottomed, 3-quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Add olive oil and minced onion and sauté for about five or six minutes until the onions are starting to soften. Add Longève crumbles and continue to cook until the onions are completely soft and translucent. Add minced garlic, diced bell peppers and adobo seasoning and cook for another three or four minutes.
  3. Add rice and cook with vegetable and Longève mixture for a minute or two, stirring to prevent rice from sticking to the bottom of the pot.
  4. Add reserved liquid and stir. Bring to a boil, cover pot and turn heat to low. Cook for 20 – 25 minutes or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed. It is best to let the rice rest off the heat for about ten minutes before adding remaining ingredients to allow any residual moisture to be absorbed. To finish the dish, carefully mix in the green peas, chopped olives and minced cilantro or parsley to the hot rice. Serve immediately as a side dish or a satisfying vegan entrée.

*ADOBO SEASONING is a blend of salt, garlic and savory spices and herbs including turmeric, paprika, and oregano. It can be found in the spice aisle at most large grocery stores.
