BROWN RICE & PINE NUTS

Have you ever made to too of one dish, only to discover a whole new dish using those leftovers?!

Kibbeh stuffed with Pine nuts. We made too much stuffing. So… Brown Rice and Pine Nuts became a quick accompaniment to our Kibbeh dinner.

I think we will keep this recipe to make again, even when there is no stuffing being made. So YUM!

 Kibbeh Stuffing is simply:

-        Onion – 1 onion chopped fine

-        Pine nuts – 4-8 ounces (depending on the amount of rice, but a little is better than none J

-        Butter – 2-4 tablespoons, again depending on the amount of rice you are making

-        Salt – ½ teaspoon

Melt the butter in a saucepan. Add onions and let them soften. Add pine nuts and salt. Cook and stir just until the pine nuts begin to change color.

 

Rice:

-        Brown rice – 1 cup per four people

-        Water – 1.5 cups of boiling water

Once the pine nuts are ready, add the rice and stir to incorporate.

Add boiling water. Stir. Cover, and let cook on medium low, about 35-40 until the rice has absorbed the liquid and is tender. 

Delicious with Kibbeh!
