THAI ISAAN FOOD: JAEW BONG (PLA RAH PASTE)

http://www.youtube.com/v/cRHKpP5PgiI?f=videos&app=youtube_gdata

This one is a kind of food that we, some of Thai Isaan people, have it with all meals! I mean breakfast, lunch and dinner. One thing that we can’t miss is various kind of veggies we can find in our own garden. Dip soft boiled veggies and sticky rice in this paste…hmmm…

Spinach and rice in dill tomato sauce

Ingredients

2-10 oz packages frozen spinach, thawed and drained
1/4 cup regular (not extra-v) olive oil
3 cups onions, finely chopped
6 scallions, thinly sliced, including some of the green tops
1/4 cup + 1 tbsp chopped fresh dill

1/3 cup converted raw rice
1/4 cup water
3 tbsp tomato paste
1 tbsp salt
1/8 tsp freshly ground black pepper

How to prepare

Trim away any tough stems from the spinach leaves. Rinse the leaves in several changes of cold water and drain in a colander. Heat the olive oil in a large pot with a tight-fitting lid. When it is hot, add the onions, scallions, and 1/4 cup of the dill and cook over medium-high heat, stirring frequently, until the onions are softened. Add the rice and cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in the water, tomato paste, salt and pepper. Add the spinach and stir to combine. Cover and cook over low heat for several minutes, stirring occasionally, until the spinach has wilted down. Continue to cook over very low heat for about 30 minutes, or until the rice is nearly tender. Stir in the remaining dill and cook for about 5 minutes, or until the rice is tender. Cover and set aside until ready to serve.
