A great rice side that's easy to put together and gluten-free too. Made for Aus/NZ Recipe Swap November 2012

I scaled this back for 3 serves and used SunRise long grain wholemeal rice which is low GI for dietary reasons (first time I have used It). The packet directions said 20 to 30 minutes by the absorbtion method and they where spot on with 30 minutes and I had a nutty flavour rice which when mixed with the dried fruits (I used apricots and sultanas) and oops forgot to toast the alaonds but only had 1/2 as much as what was needed so the nuttiness of the brown rice I think set that off. Thank you AZPARZYCH, made for Please REview My Recipe.
