  • 1/4 C butter

  • 1/2 C of chopped green bell pepper
  • 1/4 C of chopped celery
  • 1 tsp of minced garlic
  • 1-1/2 C of long grain rice uncooked
  • 1/2 tsp of Cajun or Creole seasoning
  • Pinch of kosher salt
  • 1/4 tsp of freshly cracked black pepper
  • 3 C of chicken broth


Rice Cooker

  • Place the butter and veggies in the rice cooker and press cook
  • After about 10 mins the butter will be melted and the onions will start to turn opaque.
  • add everything else, stir and restart the rice cooker, it will take a little longer than a normal batch
  • When the timer goes off stir the rice, close the lid and let it sit another 10 mins

Stove Top

  • Melt the butter over the stove and saute the vegetables.
  • Cook until the onions are opaque.
  • Add everything else, stir and bring to a boil
  • Reduce heat to a simmer, cover, and cook until rice is tender and has absorbed all the liquid, 16 to 18 minutes (check at 16 and see, it could take up to 20)
