If you haven’t cooked the carrots within the Rice, cook the carrot in small pieces in boiled water.
Chop the onions with an Electric Chopper and garlic finely (or use this Minced Garlic).
Place a large Non-stick Frying Pan over medium heat and add the oil. Add the chopped onions, garlic and salt. Sauté until translucent, soft and fragrant, stirring constantly to not let brown.
Add the smoked cubed Ham (or sausage or smoked turkey breast, or other processed meat) to the pan and stir. For a vegetarian version, skip this step.
Fluff cooked Rice* with a fork and pour over the ham.
Mix in the carrot (if not already cooked in the rice), Raisins (or Craisins Dried Cranberries), sweet corn, peas, and green onions.
Serve it hot (sprinkled with Grated Parmesan Cheese on top, if desired) by itself as a main dish or as a side. Unlike plain rice, it can be also purposed to be eaten cold or room temperature.
