Recipe Ingredients

  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • ⅓ cup pineapple juice
  • 2 ½ cups instant brown rice
  • ⅓ cup raisins
  • 2 tablespoons ground turmeric
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 1 zucchini, chopped
  • ½ cup chopped fresh mushrooms
  • ½ red bell pepper, chopped
  • ½ yellow bell pepper, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • ¼ cup lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh ginger root
  • 1 pinch ground black pepper

Cooking Directions

  1. 1 Pour the vegetable broth, chicken broth, and pineapple juice into a large saucepan, and bring to a boil over high heat. Stir in the brown rice, raisins, turmeric, and cumin, bring back to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, and the liquid has been absorbed, about 10 minutes.

  3. 3 While the vegetables are cooking, stir together honey, 1 tablespoon of oil, lemon juice, ginger, and black pepper in a bowl. Stir honey mixture, cooked vegetables, and pineapple into the cooked rice, bring the mixture back to a boil, and serve hot.

  3. Tried chicken in it and Aztec rice. Was ok

  6. It had a weird flavor that didn't seem to be as good as all the ingredients that went into it. The citrus flavor really came through if that's what your goal is.

I may try adding a little - Read more ...
