Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a 2-quart sauce pot, bring the water, orange juice, orange zest, olive oil and salt to a boil, and stir in the rice.
  2. Cover the sauce pot, and simmer the rice for 25 to 30 minutes, until rice is cooked through and liquid has totally evaporated.
  3. Empty the orange rice into a large mixing bowl, and add the cashew pieces, peppers and scallions.
  4. Just before serving, season the rice with the salt and white pepper, and add the drained mandarin orange segments, folding them in gently to prevent the oranges from breaking.

I made this for dinner last night, along with http://www.recipezaar.com/recipe/Mandarin-Pork-Chops-4143 . The orange flavor came shining through the dish. The cashews added just the right crunch. The only thing that I did differently was not add the scallions, as I didn't have any. Thank you for the recipe, it was enjoyed by all.
