Original recipe yields 3 1/2 cups

Directions

  1. Bring brown rice, chicken broth, butter, and bay leaf to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, 45 to 50 minutes; discard bay leaf.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the vegetable oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in onion and ginger; cook and stir until the onion begins to brown on the edges, about 3 minutes. Stir in the cumin and coriander, then stir in the celery and raisins. Reduce heat to medium, and cook until the celery becomes tender, about 5 minutes. Once ready, stir the onion mixture into the cooked rice along with the soy sauce; season to taste with pepper.

I really liked this recipe, although I changed a few things around. I did not have broth so I just used water to cook the rice. I used olive oil instead of butter, did not use an onion but used some onion powder, also used powdered ginger instead of fresh. I used all the other spices as written and really liked the flavor of this rice. I also used about 1/2 cup of celery and 1/2 cup of raisins. Both of my toddlers liked this recipe too, which is quite an accomplishment since they are really picky. I will make this again and next time use broth and fresh ginger. If you are out of those ingredients it still tastes fine without.

We thought this was very good and will definitely make again, with these improvements. A whole onion and much more celery, increase the spice to 1 tsp., Don't overcook it. When you add the spices, you're just toasting to bring out the flavor, the longer you cook after adding the spices, the more flavor you lose. Next time we will also increase the amount of soy sauce and raisins-we love raisins. They add a nice touch of sweetness. Very tasty dish, am looking forward to next time.

Sweet, spicy and very hearty. Didn't have celery...used walnuts. Didn't have soy sauce...used teriyaki. Didn't have coriander...did without.
