  • 1 pimento pepper finely chopped
  • ½ onion chopped
  • 1 cup uncooked Basmati rice
  • 1 cup chopped fresh parsley
  • 2 tbsp. salted butter
  • 2 tbsp. fresh parsley minced
  • 1 ½ cups water
  • Salt to taste


  • Wash the rice. Boil the rice in water for about 15 minutes on a low flame. Set aside
  • Melt the butter in a deep pan.
  • Add the chopped onion and pimento.
  • Mix in the chopped parsley (1 cup).
  • Add the cooked rice.
  • Note: We used basmati rice because of the speed at which it cooks and its lightness.
  • Adjust salt to taste. Gently toss together. Remove from heat.
  • Add the 2 tablespoon fresh parsley. Gently toss.
  • Note: This step was done to push the parsley flavour a bit in the dish. Hey after all it’s parsley rice 🙂
  • Serve hot or warm.
