Healthycooking's picture
Curried brown rice with apricots is a flavorful and filling rice recipe. Spiced with curry powder and herbed with thyme, the brown rice also has added onions in it. Served with a light or spicy side of choice, it makes a gret meal.
  Unsalted margarine 1 Tablespoon
  Yellow onion 1 Medium, chopped fine
  Garlic 1 Clove (5 gm), minced
  Finely chopped dried apricots 2 Tablespoon
  Light brown sugar 1 Teaspoon
  Curry powder 2 Teaspoon
  Brown rice 3⁄4 Cup (12 tbs)
  Water 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Lemon juice 2 Tablespoon
  Black pepper 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Dried thyme 1⁄4 Teaspoon, crumbled

Preheat the oven to 400°F.
Melt the margarine in a 1 quart flameproof casserole set over moderate heat.
Add the onion and garlic and cook, uncovered, until the onion is soft about 5 minutes.
Add the apricots and cook, stirring occasionally, 3 minutes longer.
Reduce the heat to moderately low, stir in the brown sugar and curry powder, and cook, stirring, until the sugar has caramelized 3 to 5 minutes.
Add the rice and cook, stirring, for 3 to 5 minutes or until golden.
Meanwhile, bring the water to a boil in a small saucepan and add to the casserole along with the lemon juice, pepper, and thyme.
Cover, transfer to the oven, and bake for 45 to 50 minutes or until all the liquid is absorbed and the rice is tender.
