Brown Rice, Peas and Pine Nuts


Brown rice, peas and pine nuts make a tasty trio in this easy-to-make dish. Toast the pine nuts carefully by shaking the pan over medium heat. Also called pi96ones, pine nuts will brown within a few minutes, so it’s best not to leave them unattended. Look for pine nuts in your market’s bulk food section.
