Orange Almond Brown Rice (No-Tofu)

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Vegetarian, Side Dishes, Grains

 Ingredients List

  • 2 ts Olive oil
  • 1 Shallot; minced
  • 2 tb Slivered almonds
  • 2 c Instant brown rice
  • 1 1/2 c Water
  • 3/4 c Fresh orange juice
  • 1/4 ts Fresh orange zest
  • 1/4 ts Salt


IDEA - Instant brown rice is convenient but lacks the deep, satisfying
nutty flavor of regular brown rice. Orange and almonds make a difference.

1) Heat the oil in a medium pan over medium heat. Add the shallot, stirring
often, until the shallot is translucent, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add the
almonds and stir 1 minutes. Stir in rice until combined.

2) Add water, orange juice, orange peel and salt and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat, cover and simmer 10 minutes, or until the liquid is absorbed.
Let stand 1 to 2 minutes, then stir and serve.
