Yellow Rice with Peas (Spain) Recipe

Yellow Rice with Peas (Spain) Recipe



2 tbsp
Shallots or Yellow Onions, Chopped
2 tsp
Vegetable Oil or Butter
Garlic Cloves, Minced or 2 tsp Minced Garlic
1 1/2 C
long-grain White Rice, Rinsed
2 1/4 C
Vegetable or Chicken Broth
1 tsp
Salt (unless your broth is quite salty)
3/4 tsp
1/2 to 2/3 C
Green Peas (fresh, frozen, or FD peas)


  1. Heat oil in heavy saucepan over medium high heat. Add shallots or onion and garlic. Cook until the onion begins to brown (2-3 minutes)
  2. Add rice, broth, turmeric, and salt. Add peas—enough to cover the top of the liquid as they float
  3. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and allow mixture to simmer until rice is tender—about 20-25 minutes.
  4. Mix and serve. Traditionally this is served with roast chicken or sliced roast turkey breast.


You can substitute cooked, drained black beans for peas if you prefer. Some cooks add a little saffron to the rice water for extra color and flavor, but it is expensive.
