Green Rooibos Rice

I’m cleaning up some of my recipes pages, dear reader and splitting off the ones that have become too crowded. If possible I’ll update these with photos in the future, but for now this will have to do. I’ll schedule these so they won’t overrun the site.


1/2 Cup of Wholegrain Basmati Rice
250ml Water
1 Green Rooibos Teabag
1 Tbsp Raisin/Sultanas
1/2 Tbsp Olive Oil or Butter
1/2 Tsp Curry Powder
1/4 Tsp Salt


1. Steep the Teabag and Sultanas in boiling Water or 5-10 minutes depending on desired strength.

2. Add the Olive Oil and Curry Powder to the pot and cook for 1 minute on a low heat.

3. Add the Tea (Topping up to 250ml as necessary) and Sultanas and Rice the pot. Stir it together and turn the heat to high. Wait until the water boils and starts bubbling then turn the heat down to medium (3 on hob) cover and let it just sit there for 20 minutes.

3. After the 20 minutes is up, turn off the heat. Let it stand for another 10 minutes or so. After 10 minutes, lift the lid, add the Salt and then take a fork and fluff the Rice.

      1. Thank you, I felt they might not be as visible as they should be when they were all bundled together, hence the food of rice recipes. I’ve always liked a bit of crunch and almonds are a healthy way to add it. Funnily I’ll have a recipe using those too sometime next week, I’ve scheduled a few so I can’t remember when it’ll pop up. It’s an almond pilaf. Really simple, but a very filling side.
