Rice on the Side

This is an easy and healthy way to use up leftover rice. It is yummiest if you are a little generous with oil or butter when you coat the pan!

Rice Dish
½ cup slivered almonds
handful raisins
handful peas
1 red bell pepper, diced
2 cups cooked rice
Stir-fry the almonds in oil or butter until golden; then set aside. Add the pepper, then the peas, cooking a couple of minutes until they are starting to cook but still pretty firm; set aside. Next add the raisins and rice and stir until it is all warmed through. Add back in all the other ingredients. Salt and Pepper to taste.
