This is a great vegetarian main dish or omnivore side dish. If you're not on a low-fat diet, you could add lots of other goodies. I love it as is because it's low-fat and delicious for the holidays.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook the rice according to instructions, but adding the vegetable stock cubes.
  2. In a dry non-stick skillet, lightly sautee veggies until done enough for your taste. Set aside.
  3. When the rice is done, mix rice, almonds, veggies, and cranberries together.
  4. For glaze, combine all ingredients in a nonreactive bowl and mix well. Glaze may be made up to 4 days in advance.
  5. Pour glaze over rice, if desired.
  6. Enjoy! This also works well as a stuffing for winter squash.
