Ingredients

  • 2 cups brown basmati rice
  • 1 tsp. olive oil
  • 1 large shallot, minced
  • 2/3 cup thinly sliced scallions
  • 1/2 cup shredded carrots
  • 4 cups boiling vegetable stock
  • 1/2 tsp. ground turmeric
  • 1/4 tsp. sea salt
  • 1/3 cup cashew pieces
  • 1/4 cup crystallized ginger

Preparation

  1. Rinse rice thoroughly in a wire mesh colander using cold running water for at least 2 minutes. Set aside.
  2. Heat oil for 30 seconds in a saucepan over medium heat, and add shallot, scallions, carrots and rice. Sauté for 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Add stock, turmeric and salt.
