Orange Slices with Pistachios and Cardamom


Tasting is believing when it comes to this deceptively simple dessert. Orange-flower water is found in the specialty foods section of supermarkets or liquor stores.


  • 6 small navel oranges
  • 1/4 cup brown rice syrup
  • 1 Tbs. orange-flower water or 2 Tbs. orange juice
  • 1 tsp. ground cardamom
  • 3 Tbs. shelled pistachios, chopped


  1. Remove peel and pith from oranges with paring knife. Slice into thin rounds. Arrange in shallow bowl.
  2. Combine brown rice syrup, orange-flower water and cardamom in saucepan. Bring to a simmer over low heat. Once it simmers, remove from heat, and pour syrup over oranges. Cover, and chill.
  3. Spoon oranges and syrup into bowls, and sprinkle with pistachios.
