Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375°F. In an oven-safe small saucepan with a lid bring 2 cups water and 1 1/2 teaspoons salt to boiling. Stir in rice; cover. Transfer to oven. Cook 20 minutes or until rice is tender and water is absorbed. Spread rice onto a baking sheet or tray; let cool.

  • Meanwhile, in a nonstick skillet cook almonds over medium-low 2 to 3 minutes or until starting to brown, stirring constantly. Transfer to a bowl.

  • Once rice cool, heat a large skillet over medium-high. Add 1/2 cup water, the butter, Chili Garlic Jazz, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Bring to boiling.

  • Add cooked rice to skillet. Cook 5 minutes or until hot. Add sweet and snap peas; mix to combine. Cook 30 seconds more or until heated.

  • Remove from heat. Stir in pea shoots. Top with toasted almonds and additional pea shoots. Makes 8 servings.

Chili Garlic Jazz

Preheat oven to 250°F. In a food processor combine 1 cup coarsely chopped garlic, 1/2 cup coarsely chopped red finger or Fresno chiles, and 1/4 cup canola oil. Process 2 to 3 minutes or until mixture forms a thick paste. Pour into an oven-safe 1 quart pot. Add 1/2 to 2/3 cup canola oil; the oil should come just over the top of the mixture. Cover; bake 45 to 60 minutes or until mixture smells toasty. Let cool completely. Refrigerate in a screw-top jar up to 1 month.
