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


  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees.
  2. Heat the oil in a sauté pan over medium heat. Add the onion and celery and cook for 2-3 minutes or until slightly softened.
  3. Remove the pan from the heat. Add the rice, apple, dried fruit, almonds, salt, and thyme. Mix ingredients thoroughly.  
  4. Transfer to a baking dish of your choice. Bake for 12-15 minutes or until hot and lightly crisped. Makes about 3 1/2 cups.
