Pilaf with Sweet Peas

(Bezelyeli Pilav)

Pilaf with Sweet Peas
1 cup rice, washed and drained
2 cups water
1/2 cup sweet peas, frozen
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp dill, chopped
1 tsp salt
1 pinch pepper

Boil water in a medium-sized pot and add the rice, peas, oil, salt and pepper. Turn the heat to simmer, stir and put the lid halfway on. Cook until the rice is done (when all the liquid has evaporated). Then add chopped dill and stir. Put aside for a few minutes.

You can serve this dish warm or cold as a side dish with any kind of lamb, beef or chicken.

* This is a vegetarian dish.
