  2. 1 cup water

  3. 1 tablespoon earth balance vegan margarine (butter or margarine if you're not vegan)

  4. 1/2 teaspoon sea salt

Instructions Jump to Ingredients ↑

  1. If you're using dried orange or lemon rind like me, place 2 1/4 tsp dried rind and 6 3/4 teaspoons water in a bowl and let stand for 15 minutes to hydrate.

  2. Bring the water to a boil. Add the salt, rind, Earth Balance, turmeric, and cardamom and mix well before adding the rice.

  3. Make sure the rice is covered, then lower the heat to a simmer and loosely cover. Cook for 45-50 minutes or until the rice has absorbed all the water and steam and is soft and fluffy.

  4. Mix the peas in with the cooked rice, cover and let sit for 5 minutes so they can absorb the steam.

  5. Stir and serve.
