Golden Raisin & Apricot Rice

Serving size: 4 - 6
Active time: 15 min
Total time: 60 min

I can guarantee you two things with this dish:
1. It’s a healthy dish that will go excellently with just about any piece of meat that is grilled, and
2. It will stain any piece of clothing it comes in contact with, therefore you should have your toddler eat it shirtless, like we had ours do.

The length of time for creating this dish is less than 60 minutes, and it only takes that long because it takes about 50 minutes to cook the rice. Chopping the dried apricots, the onion, and mixing everything together would take a max of 15 minutes, which is easily done while the rice is cooking. Start the charcoal grill, then get the rice cooking before you chop the onion, apricots, and set aside the rest of the ingredients. Then sit for approximately 5-8 minutes enjoying a beer and catching up with your family before you get back to the grill to throw the meat on, and start cooking the rest of the rice dish in the wok. You don’t have to cook the rice in a wok, but I love the long tall sides that allow me to easily mix everything together without it spilling onto my stovetop, thereby prompting my wife to inform me that I have to clean the stove. (Don’t tell her I wrote that.) Enjoy!

Ingredients
3 ¾ cup of cooked brown Basmati rice, then set aside.(Follow the instructions on the bag/box and prepare)
1/3 cup of golden raisins
1/3 cup of dried apricots, chop into roughly the same size as the golden raisins
¼ medium yellow onion, chopped
1 teaspoon of turmeric
1/3 teaspoon of cumin
½ tablespoon of small granule sea salt
½ teaspoon ground coriander
3 tablespoons of sunflower oil

Directions
Turn on the heat under the wok to medium-low, and allow the wok to heat up before adding in the oil and the onion to cook for approximately 2 minutes before adding in the dried apricots and raisins. Stir, and allow it to cook for 2.5-3 minutes before adding in the spices and salt. Stir for approximately 1 minute, then add in the cooked rice, and stir to mix all the ingredients evenly. Once the dish is a nice even yellow color (thanks turmeric!), turn off the heat, cover the wok, and allow the dish to sit for 8-10 minutes before serving.

Enjoy!
