    Sandi (From CA)'s Note:

    I bought a HUUUUUGE bag of shelled pistachios at Sam's Club today after seeing a delicious-sounding recipe in the latest issue of Gourmet. This actually isn't that recipe, but before I could input it, I ran across this one and freaked out. In a good way. (I think.) Can't wait to try this -- it sounds awesome.

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Sauté bacon in a large saucepan over medium high heat until crisp. Remove the pieces and drain. Add the celery, onion, and garlic to the pan, reduce heat, and saute until the onion is translucent--about 5 minutes. Spoon the vegetables out onto paper towels and blot away the bacon grease.
    2. 2
      Wipe out the saucepan, then return the vegetables to it, along with the bacon, bay leaf, and sherry. Bring to a simmer and allow to reduce until all the sherry has evaporated. Stir in the chicken stock and the rice. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer for about 30 minutes, when the rice is very soft.
    3. 3
      Meanwhile, heat the oil in a small skillet, add the pistachios, and toss until they are lightly browned--perhaps 2 or so minutes. Drain on paper towels.
    4. 4
      When the rice is soft, discard the bay leaf and puree the pistachios and soup in a blender, solids first. When smooth, return to saucepan. Stir in the cream and reheat. Season to taste.
    5. 5
      When ready to serve, ladle into bowls and garnish with minced parsley.

      Made this a few years ago but haven't gotten around to it lately. It was creamy and delicious and very rich. It's a little too rich to eat a whole bowl of it actually but makes a really nice side or snack.
