Greek Leek Rice (Prassorizo)

We have already posted the recipe for Spinach Rice - Spanakorizo - and this is another simple and easy rice recipe that is cooked a lot here in Greece. It can be prepared very quickly and is both delicious and nutritious. It can be eaten hot, as soon as it has been prepared or it is equally tasty as a cold dish later on.

250g rice for risotto
1 onion finely chopped
2 carrots
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 tablespoon celery leaves finely chopped
Salt and pepper


Slice the leeks into 1cm pieces.

In a saucepan, heat the oil and add the leeks and the onion.

Stir and gently fry for 2 minutes.

Slice the carrots into ½ cm pieces, add them to the pan and stir.

Add the rice and then the salt and pepper, continuously stirring.

Then add 250ml warm water and bring to the boil.

Cover the pan and simmer until the leeks are tender and the rice is cooked.
