Chef.Foodie's picture
  Pine nuts/Slivered almonds 3 Tablespoon
  Olive oil/Salad oil 2 Teaspoon
  Long grain brown rice 1⁄3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
  Golden raisins 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Chili powder 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Chicken broth 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Broccoli 8 Ounce

Toast pine nuts in a medium-size frying pan over medium heat until golden (about 4 minutes), stirring often.
Pour out of pan and set aside.
Increase heat to medium-high.
To pan, add oil, rice, raisins, and chili powder.
Cook, stirring, until rice is opaque (about 2 minutes).
Add broth, stir well, and bring to a boil; then reduce heat, cover, and simmer until rice is barely tender to bite (about 25 minutes).
Meanwhile, cut flowerets off broccoli and set aside.
Cut off and discard tough ends of stalks; thinly slice tender sections of stalks.
After rice has cooked for 25 minutes, lay broccoli flowerets and sliced stalks atop rice.
Cover and continue to cook until broccoli is just tender to bite (about 10 more minutes).
Gently stir broccoli into rice; sprinkle with pine nuts.
