Dietitian’s tip:

Any brown or black rice functions in this recipe. Devote in the pistachio oil if you can. Its taste is so rigorous that just a little bit helps make this dish flavor extremely rich.

Range of servings

Serves eight

  1. Wholesome carb


  1. 1 1/eight cups dim brown rice, rinsed and drained
  2. two cups h2o
  3. 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  4. 1/4 teaspoon saffron threads or ground turmeric
  5. 1/two teaspoon grated orange zest
  6. 3 tablespoons refreshing orange juice
  7. 1 1/two tablespoons pistachio oil or canola oil
  8. 1/4 cup chopped pistachio nuts
  9. 1/4 cup dried apricots, chopped


In a saucepan above substantial heat, mix the rice, h2o, 1/4 teaspoon of the salt and the saffron. Deliver to a boil. Decrease the heat to small, deal with and simmer until finally the h2o is absorbed and the rice is tender, about 45 minutes. Transfer to a substantial bowl and continue to keep heat.

In a tiny bowl, mix the orange zest and juice, oil, and remaining 1/two teaspoon salt. Whisk to mix. Pour the orange combination above the heat rice. Insert the nuts and apricots and toss gently to combine and coat. Provide straight away.
