Default Brown Rice recipes

Brown Rice with Cashews and Herbs (Phase 2)

2 TB olive oil or Smart Balance spread
1 medium onion, chopped
1 teaspoon minced garlic
1 cup brown rice, rinsed
1/2 cup cashew pieces
1 bay leaf
1/2 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves (1/4 teaspoon dried)
Salt and ground black pepper
2 cups chicken or vegetable stock, or water

Place oil or butter in a medium skillet over medium heat; when oil
is hot or butter melts, add onion and garlic and cook, stirring until
softened, about 5 minutes.
Add brown rice and nuts and cook, stirring, for 1 minute; add the
herbs, salt, pepper and liquid. Bring to a boil.
Turn heat to low, cover and cook for 30 minutes. Check rice's
progress: It is done when it is tender but still a little chewy.
Continue to cook in needed, adding a little more liquid if it has all
been absorbed, but the rice is not quite done. If there is too much
water when done, cover and remove from heat; the liquid should absorb
within 10 minutes.
Remove the bay leaf before serving

Default Brown Rice with Onions And Pecans

Brown Rice with Onions and Pecans
1 cup long-grain brown rice
3 tablespoons butter
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/2 cup chopped green onion
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup coarsely chopped pecans
2 tablespoons chopped green onion tops
Prepare brown rice in medium saucepan, following package instructions.
About 15 minutes before the rice is done, melt the butter in a heavy skillet over medium-low heat. Add the onion and sauté, stirring frequently, until the onion is softened and begins to yellow, about 10 minutes.
Stir in the garlic, pecans, and green onion; sauté over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the onions are golden and the garlic is tender, about 5 minutes.
Remove rice from heat and let stand, covered, for 5 minutes. Spoon brown rice into a bowl; spoon the onions and pecans on top and toss lightly to combine. Garnish with the chopped green onion tops.
Brown rice with onions and pecans serves 4.
