    List of Ingredients

    Servess 6-8

    1 1/2 tablespoons unsalted butter
    1/4 pound boiled ham, diced
    1 1/2 cups finely chopped yellow onions
    1/2 cup finely chopped celery
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    2 bay leaves
    2 cups long-grain white rice
    1/2 cup finely chopped green onions (green and white parts)
    1/2 cup seeded and chopped tomatoes
    2 teaspoons finely chopped garlic
    1/2 cup frozen peas
    3 1/2 cups chicken stock or canned low-sodium chicken broth


    1. Preheat the oven to 325 F.

    2. Melt the butter in a large ovenproof saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the ham and cook for 2 minutes. Add the onions, celery, salt, pepper, and bay leaves and cook, stirring often, until the vegetables soften, about 4 minutes. Add the rice and stir to coat. Add the green onions, tomatoes, and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2 minutes. Stir in the peas and chicken stock. Bring to a boil over high heat.

    3. Remove the pan from the heat and cover tightly with aluminum foil. Bake until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed, about 30 minutes.

    4. Remove from the oven and let stand, covered, for 10 to 15 minutes. Remove the bay leaves.

    5. Before serving, fluff the rice with a fork.
