Nutrition
  • 14
    cup butter

    cups water or 3 cups chicken broth
  • 2
    cups total of your favorite dried fruits (I use pine nuts, apricots, slivered almonds, currants and golden raisins) or 2 cups nuts, chopped into small pieces customize this part as you wish (I use pine nuts, apricots, slivered almonds, currants and golden raisins)

DIRECTIONS

  • Put rice and broth into a pot and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to simmer. Cover until the liquid is gone (about 20 min).
  • In a saute pan, melt the butter and add the dried fruit and nuts. Be careful not to burn the butter.
  • When the rice is done, put it in a large bowl and top it with the fruit and nut mixture.
  • Optionally, you may want to toast the nuts in a dry pan to help bring out more of their flavor.
