Sweet-Potato Rice Pilaf

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 bunch scallions (white part only)
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 cup long-grain rice, uncooked

  • 1/2 cup frozen peas and carrots
  • 1/4 cup raisins
  • 1 ½ teaspoons curry powder
  • 1 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste

In a large non-stick skillet, heat oil over medium heat and sauté scallions and garlic for one minute. Add rice, and cook for 2 minutes, or until grains are golden.
