    The Pantry Elf's Note:

    This rice not only looks beautiful, but it's bursting with savory flavors, and your house will smell delicious when you cook this! This is a recipe I adapted from Taste Of Home's Holiday Recipes. I made it my own by altering a few ingredients and adding others, but yield amount and cooking time/method are the same. I like to make the rice mix a day or two ahead to let all the flavors meld. This makes 2 batches of rice.

    My Private Note


    Serves: 4-6



    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      In a large bowl, combine the first 8 ingredients. You can do this a day or two in advance to allow flavors to meld, but it's not necessary.
    2. 2
      Combine water and butter in a saucepan; bring to a boil.
    3. 3
      Add 2 cups rice mix, reduce heat, and simmer for 20 minutes, or until liquid is absorbed.
    4. 4
      NOTE: I make this a complete meal by adding cooked chicken thighs. You can store this rice mix in an airtight container for up to 3 months.

      OMG, this was fantastic! The dried fruit (I used dates and cranberries) really added a unique flavor. My wrestler son, who watches his food intake and usually eats half his dinner, had seconds! My husband, to whom tofu is a 4 letter word,even agreed with my suggestion that next time I add tofu and serve as a whole meal. My only problem was that my rice needed more water and cooking time than specified in the recipe.

      Really enjoyed this delicious rice dish. The package of dried fruit I used contained dried prunes, apricots, dates and apples. I served this dish along side a wine-braised chicken dish and both complimented each other very well. Made for PAC, 2011.

      What a delicious recipe! Loved, loved this colorful rice dish! I used Penzey's sweet curry powder so it wasn't at all hot. The dried fruit & nuts and pretty presentation makes this a company worthy side dish. I served with baked salmon and green peas, but I think it could be paired with almost anything. It's that good! I didn't have the dried apricots on hand this time so used 1/2 cup each of chopped dates, dried cranberries, and golden raisins. I omitted the 1/2 teaspoon of salt as I always try to reduce the sodium level in our diet. I think the dry mix would be a lovely hostess gift and I've saved the recipe in my "Best of...." cookbook. Thank you for sharing the recipe! Discovered during Pick A Chef Spring 2011. :-)
