Simple Plov


There are days I crave Russian food, like today. Specifically, Plov, a rice dish usually eaten with a meat entree. For the sake of cravings, it was all I desired today. My father-in-law usually cooks this delicious rice dish, but he was at work so I tried my hand at it. It tastes fairly close, yet still, his is better.

Simple Plov
(serves 6)

Ingredients:

  • 3 large carrots diced
  • 1 large onion diced
  • 6 cups cooked white rice
  • olive oil
  • salt to taste


Method:
  1. Cook rice in rice cooker.
  2. Saute diced onion in olive oil on medium heat until translucent.
  3. In a separate pan, saute diced carrots in olive oil on medium heat until soft.
  4. Set onion and carrots aside.
  5. In a separate large pot or a large bowl, place white rice then top with the cooked onions and carrots. Mix evenly.
  6. Add salt to taste.
  7. Serve with sliced cucumbers, sliced tomatoes, and a veggie meat.
  8. Enjoy!

Maksim, our little Russian boy loves Plov!
The Asian boy in him also loves rice, so this was perfect for him.
He stuffed his face with Plov.
