Spicy Rice With Fruit

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by ladypit

A nice healthy side dish with no added fat, this is slightly modified from "500 Fat Free Recipes" by Sarah Schlesinger. This makes a nice side dish for baked fish or chicken, but is also good cold! Feel free to modify the dried fruit if you would like.

This was ok I did reduce the allspice by half. It may be better with the full amount? I omitted the prunes as I didn't have any on hand. I served this with Recipe #103812 warm.
