Raisin and Spice Brown Rice - Recipe Blitz
Rice with a lot of "stuff" in it appeals to me, much more than a plain rice. I tend to throw in all kinds of extras. I think it is the difference in textures that is so good.
Raisin and Spice Brown Rice (adapted from allrecipes.com)
Bring brown rice, chicken broth, butter, and bay leaf to a boil in a
saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and
simmer until the rice is tender, 45 to 50 minutes; discard bay leaf.
Meanwhile, heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Stir
in onion and ginger; cook and stir until the onion begins to brown on the
edges, about 3 minutes. Stir in the cumin and coriander. Then stir in the
celery, nuts and raisins. Reduce heat to medium, and cook until the celery
becomes tender, about 5 minutes.
Once ready, stir the onion mixture into the cooked rice along with the soy
sauce; season to taste with pepper.
