Fruited Rice Recipe

Fruited Rice

Pair this rice with Persian Spiced Chicken or any meat or fish of your choice. Using cold leftover rice is perfect since hot grains tend to stick together. 


  • 3 tablespoons vegetable or canola oil
  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 stalk celery, chopped
  • 2 cups cooked rice
  • 1 tart apple, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 1 cup chopped mixed dried fruit such as apricots, raisins, figs or prunes
  • 1/4 cup chopped almonds lightly toasted
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • 1 1/2 fresh thyme leaves


Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Heat the oil in a saut√© pan over medium heat. Add the onion and celery and cook for 2-3 minutes or until slightly softened. Remove the pan from the heat. Add the rice, apple, dried fruit, almonds, salt and thyme. Mix ingredients thoroughly.  Transfer to a baking dish of your choice. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until hot and lightly crisped. Makes about 31/2 cups.
