Fluffy rice is studded with a variety of vegetables such as carrots, onions, and tomatoes. This dish is super simple to make and the best thing about it is that it all comes together in one pan for easy clean-up.

  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 leek (chopped)
  • 2 garlic cloves (minced)

  • 1 carrot (cut into cubes)
  • 75 grams tomatoes (peeled and chopped)
  • 2 bay leaves
  • thyme
  • 1 1/2 cups long grain rice
  • 50 milliliters white wine
  • 3 cups vegetable broth

I grew up on Challah and make it every week. This recipe is chewy and moist as Challah should be! I prefer to top with sesame seeds, rather than poppy, or with nothing more than a brushing of warm butter before it’s brought to the table. A seasonal variation is to add dried fruits and nuts and to join the two ends of each braid together to make a circle. We call this crown Challah.
