Parmesan Peas ’n’ Rice are a wonderful complement for any meal. My husband, John, likes rice but isn’t crazy about peas, and I’m just the opposite. It's a great compromise!


  • 1/3 cup uncooked long grain rice
  • 1 green onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2/3 cup frozen peas, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese


  1. In a small saucepan, saute rice and onion in butter until onion is tender. Stir in broth and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
  2. Add peas; cover and cook 5-6 minutes longer or until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender. Stir in cheese.
