Recipe: Arroz Verde

Title: Arroz Verde
Categories: Mexican, Rice/grains
Yield: 6 servings

Jim Vorheis 1 Garlic clove, peeled and
1 1/2 c Unconverted long-grain rice -roughly chopped
1/3 c Safflower oil, melted 1 c Firmly packed, roughly
-chicken fat, or melted lard -chopped flat-leaf parsley
3 tb Finely chopped white onion 1/2 c Firmly packed, roughly
2 Chilies poblanos, charred, -chopped epazote or cilantro
-peeled, and cut in strips Sea salt to taste
4 c Chicken broth Green Rice

Put the rice into a bowl and pour very hot water over to cover; stir and
set aside for 10 minutes. Drain in a strainer and rinse in cold water;
drain again and set aside.

Heat the oil in a heavy pan, stir the rice into it, and fry over fairly
high heat, stirring and scraping the bottom of the pan, for about 5
minutes. Add the onion and chile strips and continue frying for 4 minutes
or until the onion is translucent.

Meanwhile, put 1 cup of the broth into a blender jar; add the garlic,
parsley, and epazote and blend until smooth. Add this to the frying rice
and continue frying and reducing the puree over quite high heat, stirring
and scraping the bottom of the pan, until the rice is dry. Stir in the rest
of the broth, add salt to taste, and cook over fairly high heat, uncovered,
until the liquid has been absorbed and there are air holes in the rice.
Cover with a towel and lid and continue cooking over low heat for 5
minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside, still covered, in a warm
place for the rice to swell up. Before serving, turn the rice over with a
fork from the bottom where a lot of the flavor and oil will have settled.
