Simple Side

Simple Side

This is one of those side dishes that can be thrown together last minute.  We all have some sort of rice in our pantry and veggies that need to be used.  As well as rice I always have a bag of frozen peas.  I served this with salmon and it really was amazing!  But remember you can use any rice or vegetables that you have available.


1 bag of Basmati rice(or any rice you have available)

1 bag of broccoli slaw(they sell it in the produce section)

Half of a small onion chopped

1 small bag of frozen peas


Salt and Pepper


  • Prepare rice according to directions on bag.  Set aside.
  • Meanwhile, heat about 1 tablespoon of olive oil in a medium pan.
  • Saute the onion until tender.
  • Toss in the broccoli slaw and cook until crisp.
  • In the end throw in the frozen peas and cook for a few minutes.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Carefully combine the rice and the veggies
  • Drizzle with a little olive oil and more salt if needed.
