Simple Jeweled Rice

Simple Jeweled Rice

My mom has been making this yummy rice for years. I had no idea that it was a version of Persian jeweled rice, but once I learned of the traditional Persian food, I realized that it’s the absolute perfect name for this recipe. Bejeweled with sweet and delicious dried fruits, this rice turns a simple side dish into a meal fit for a king!

I don’t even want to bring up Rosh Hashana because I cannot believe that it’s almost here. Where did the whole summer go?! But, sans the nuts, I do have to say that this would make a beautiful accompaniment to your yom tov seudah. Just thinking about sweet tzimmis and honey cake is making me pine for the sweet New Year. It’s just around the bend!

    1. I love my mom’s tzimmes. I don’t have exact measurements, but basically it’s sliced carrots, cubed sweet potatoes, honey, sugar, salt, marrow bones and 1/2 pot water. Simmer for about an hour.
