This colorful side dish tastes delicious and is a great accompaniment to meat or chicken. It can even be used as a stuffing for peppers or chicken cutlets. The honey adds a wonderful flavor.

Main ingredients

Start Cooking

Prepare Rice

  1. Sauté the peppers and onion in a little bit of oil until golden brown (about 15 minutes) and set aside.
  2. In a small pot, boil the garlic, honey, soy sauce, and salt.
  3. In a large bowl, mix the vegetables, sauce, and cooked rice.
  4. Serve hot.
Note: Serving idea:Place the rice mixture on a raw chicken cutlet and roll it up (secure with a toothpick if necessary). Smear the top with oil and spices, cover, and bake until the chicken is almost ready. Uncover, pour duck sauce generously on top, and bake for another 10 minutes.
Tip: You can cook the rice the conventional way, or you can do it in the oven (and free a much-needed flame on Erev Yom Tov!). Proportions are 1 cup of rice to approximately two cups of boiling water. I put the rice in a 9x13-inch pan, and I add the boiling water, salt to taste, and a little oil. I mix it gently together, cover very tightly with foil, and bake in a preheated 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180 degrees Celsius) oven for about 45 minutes. I don’t mix it midway. After it’s removed from the oven, I let it sit until cool and fluff it with a fork. The rice comes out beautiful — and this way, it’s not sticky! The vegetables can be sautéed in advance and frozen. Before you heat the dish, defrost them and add them to the rice.
Variation: This dish works equally well with brown rice or white rice.

    Rainbow Honey Rice

    Great for Sheva Brachos

    This is a real "go to" for Sheva Brachos. Because of the colorful peppers, it enhances the table. For me, the biggest selling point is that it's easy, and can be doubled without effort. Other than perhaps needing more peppers, it uses ingredients that most of us have on hand. I've done this both in the oven and on the stovetop, and it's always a winner.
