Brown Rice Pilaf w/ Apples & Dried Fruits

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

  • ½ cup chopped onion

  • ¼ cup chopped peeled carrot

  • ¼ cup chopped celery

  • 1 teaspoon curry powder

  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger

  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon

  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic

  • 1 cup long-grain brown rice

  • 2 cups chopped apples (1-inch pieces)

  • 2¼ cups low sodium vegetable stock (or water)

  • ½ teaspoon salt

  • ½ teaspoon ground black pepper

  • 1/8 cup raisins

  • 1/8 cup unsweetened dried apricots, chopped

  • 1/8 cup unsweetened dried cherries, chopped

Directions:

  1. Rinse rice in a colander with cold water for about 30 seconds. Set aside.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large, heavy saucepan over medium heat. Add onion, carrot and celery and sauté for about 5 minutes.
