Preparation

  1. Wash rice and put into a 2-quart pot with water. Bring to boil, then lower heat to simmer, and cook uncovered until all the water is absorbed, approximately 45 minutes. Or use a rice cooker.
  2. Pour rice into medium sized bowl and allow to cool.
  3. Slice the eggplant into small pieces, and chop the red pepper into small strips, then sauté the red peppers and eggplant in 2 Tbsp of olive oil until both look a bit melted.
  4. Pour lemon juice over rice and stir. When rice is cooled to lukewarm, add vegetables, salt, pepper, and oil.
  5. Stir and chill at least 1 hour. This dish also can be served warm. Enjoy!
