My husband won’t say it — because he’s a nice guy — but he gets tired of rice, so I try to punch it up by adding vegetables, spices, using flavored broth instead of water, etc. Rice is so simple, yet you can do so much with it.
I had to make a salad/side dish for the teachers at my son’s middle school today. I knew I would make an apple dish, but I wasn’t sure which one. Then I found a recipe for Brown Rice with Apples.
BROWN RICE WITH APPLES
Heat oil in large nonstick saucepan over medium heat until hot. Add shallot and garlic; cook about 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in rice, broth, apple and pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low; cover and cook 10 to 15 minutes or until rice is tender.
Remove saucepan from heat; let stand 5 minutes. Drain and discard any excess liquid. Stir in parsley.
