Nutty and neutral, this rice dish is very versatile- add a dash of salt for savory, a drizzle of honey for sweet. Just like my Coconut Cashew Rice recipe, it is a great accompaniment to a spicy dish.
2 cups cooked brown rice ( I used Trader Joe Frozen microwavable, ready in 3 minutes!)
1/3 cup unsweetened almond milk (I used Unsweetened Almond Breeze)
¼ cup slivered almonds
¼ cup dried cranberries
1 teaspoon whipped butter or light margarine
Cook rice according to package directions. Add 1 teaspoon light margarine or whipped butter to a medium sized pot, throw in the nuts and cranberries and toast on low heat for 5-8 minutes. Add the rice and stir in the almond milk to evenly coat. Heat for another few minutes and serve.
