I portioned the meat and washed it. I cleaned and washed the carrots and onions. I put the meat together with the vegetables (including the frozen pepper) and a pinch of salt in the pressure cooker.

I poured about 1.5 liters of water and boiled them for 25 minutes. When they boiled, I took them out, I removed the onion and I cut the carrot into cubes. I heated the oil in a pan and hardened the washed and drained rice.

I hardened it for 2-3 minutes until the grain became translucent, then I added 4 cups of soup in which it boiled the meat.

I let it boil and put the pan in the oven over medium heat.

From time to time I mixed lightly. After 20-25 minutes I added the meat and diced carrot and seasoned with salt and pepper.

I left it until all the soup fell and the rice grain boiled. At the end I sprinkled parsley.

Quinoa is prepared similar to rice, only the time is reduced by half, it is tasty and easy to digest. Quinoa seeds are of several colors: red, black, white and gold.

To increase the nutritional value, quinoa can be germinated, thus activating enzymes and multiplying the content of vitamins. The germination period is short, requiring about 4 hours of rest in a glass of clean water to germinate and release gases. This process softens the berries, making them suitable for addition to salads and other cold foods.

It is important to rinse the quinoa beans well in cold water because their outer layer, called saponin, gives a bitter taste.

Cut the chicken breast into larger cubes. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons of spices over them, mix well, then pour 2 tablespoons of oil and massage the meat until well covered. Leave in the fridge to marinate for at least 2 hours or overnight.

Heat 5 tablespoons of olive oil in a large, tall pan. Put the chicken pieces in it and fry until it changes color, stirring rarely, to make cubes on all sides. Remove the meat from the pan and keep warm.

In the remaining oil, fry the finely chopped onion, pepper and parsley. When soaked, add the crushed tomatoes with a fork and a cup of water (or tomato paste dissolved in a cup of water). Bring everything to a boil and then put the chicken back in the pan. Add 1 teaspoon of salt. Boil everything with a lid on medium heat for 15 minutes.

During this time, boil 1 l of water (or chicken soup if you have it).

Add the rice, peas, 1/2 teaspoon salt, mix well to distribute the rice evenly, then add boiled water. Boil over low heat until the rice is cooked al dente (it should not be completely soft), about 15 minutes. Rarely, pass the spoon over the bottom of the pan so that the rice does not stick. Stop the fire.

In the end, the pilaf should have a little more liquid on top, that's perfect. Put the lid on the pan and let that liquid absorb for about 15 minutes, the rice will swell and be done properly.
