Simple Jeweled Rice

Written by chanie on August 16th, 2011

My mom has been making this yummy rice for years. I had no idea that it was a version of Persian jeweled rice, but once I learned of the traditional Persian food, I realized that it’s the absolute perfect name for this recipe. Bejeweled with sweet and delicious dried fruits, this rice turns a simple side dish into a meal fit for a king!

I don’t even want to bring up Rosh Hashana because I cannot believe that it’s almost here. Where did the whole summer go?! But, sans the nuts, I do have to say that this would make a beautiful accompaniment to your yom tov seudah. Just thinking about sweet tzimmis and honey cake is making me pine for the sweet New Year. It’s just around the bend!

    This does, indeed, look like a lovely Rosh Hashana dish. It’s going on my yom tov bookmark list!

    Do you have a good tzimmis recipe?

      I love my mom’s tzimmes. I don’t have exact measurements, but basically it’s sliced carrots, cubed sweet potatoes, honey, sugar, salt, marrow bones and 1/2 pot water. Simmer for about an hour.
