Recipe by Vegwife

This recipe came from a book about the healing properties of food. The main healing ingredient is turmeric. I could not tell you why though. My recipe card smells of turmeric from when I make this recipe. I serve this with my Indian Lima Beans. My husband says this meal cures a sore throat. This is one of my all time favorite meals.

  1. Heat the oil in a 2 quart sauce pan.
  2. Toast pine nuts until they are fragrant, about 3 minutes.
  3. Add onions and cook until soft.
  4. Add raisins, rice, turmeric and salt.
  5. Add water until rice is covered. boil and cook until the water has mostly absorbed. Keep this up until the rice is cooked, about 25 minutes (almost like cooking a risotto).
