A lovely blend of flavors, fit for a luncheon served with a grilled fish or lime glazed chicken breast. Keep some tart dried Cherries around for this impromptu dish. In a pinch you may substitute dried Cranberries.
You may cook the Gaba rice in advance (like early morning) since it takes about 35 - 40 minutes, and leave pot out until you're ready to make the Pilaf. I always have pine nuts in my freezer for immediate availability.
- 1 c. chopped organic Green onion
- 2 c. chopped organic Celery
- 1/2 c. dried, Tart organic Cherries
- 1/2 c. Pine Nuts
- 1 Tbs. chopped fresh organic Thyme (or 1 teaspoon dried)
- 1/2 tsp. ground Black pepper
- 1 Tbs. Coconut Oil (or Virgin Olive Oil)
- 2 c. cooked brown Gaba rice (may use Wild Rice)
Put onion, celery, cherries, nuts, thyme, pepper and oil in a large skillet.
Cook, uncovered, over medium heat 10 minutes, or until vegetables are tender; stir occasionally. Add rice; mix well.
Cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until thoroughly heated.
That's it, simple and scrumptious!
~ Enjoy! ♥
