How To Make Winter Pilaf

Who says vegetarians don’t get to enjoy savory meals? A taste of these authentic vegetarian recipes will make you change your mind. So, you just might want to go vegetarian after your first bite.

Preparation: 15 minutes
Cooking: 30 minutes
Total: 45 minutes



  • 2 cups of basmati rice
  • 4 cups of vegetable broth
  • 1 onion, diced
  • 2 carrots, diced
  • 1 celery stalk, diced
  • 1 cup of frozen peas
  • 1/4 cup of dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup of slivered almonds
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin
  • 1 teaspoon of turmeric
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. In a large pot, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the diced onion, carrots, and celery. Cook until the vegetables are softened, about 5 minutes.

  2. Rinse the basmati rice under cold water until the water runs clear. Add the rice to the pot and stir to coat in the oil and vegetables.

  3. Add the vegetable broth, cumin, turmeric, salt, and pepper. Bring to a boil.

  4. Reduce the heat to low, cover the pot, and simmer for 15 minutes, or until the rice is cooked and the liquid is absorbed.

  5. Stir in the frozen peas and dried cranberries. Cover and let sit for 5 minutes to allow the peas to thaw and the cranberries to soften.

  6. Fluff the pilaf with a fork and sprinkle with slivered almonds before serving.
