From EatingWell: The EatingWell Healthy in a Hurry Cookbook (2006)
Nuts and dried fruit up the nutrition--and tastiness--of brown rice.
- 2 1/2 cups water
- 1 cup brown rice
- 1/2 cup dried fruit
- 1/4 cup chopped nuts, (walnuts, pecans, almonds or pine nuts)
- Bring water, rice and fruit to a boil in a medium saucepan. Cover, reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, until tender and most of the liquid has been absorbed, 40 to 50 minutes. Stir nuts into the hot rice, cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork.
