Cashew and Raisin Brown Rice Recipe



Ingredients:
2 Tbl canola oil
1/2 C golden raisins
1/2 C raw cashews
1 tsp cumin seeds
4 cardamom pods
2 bay leaves
2 3-inch cinnamon sticks
Large red onion, thinly sliced
1/2 tsp kosher salt
1/2 tsp ground turmeric
2 C germinated brown rice
4 C water
1/2 C minced cilantro, to garnish (optional)
 
Instructions:
1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the raisins and cashews and cook for 2-3 minutes until raisins are plump and nuts are toasted. Remove with a slotted spoon and place on plate or in a bowl and set aside.
2. Add the cumin seeds, cardamom, bay leaves and cinnamon sticks to the pan. Sauté for 1 minute. Add in the sliced red onion and sauté for 2-3 minutes. Add in the salt, turmeric and rice and toast the rice for about 2-3 minutes. Add in the water, bring to a boil. Lower the heat, cover, and cook on low for about 25-35 minutes until rice is tender. Remove the pan from the heat and let stand, covered for 10 minutes.
3. Fluff the rice with a fork. Top the rice with the raisins and cashews and sprinkle with parsley.

Cooking Instructions

1. Put germinated brown rice in a pot with 2 cups of water. Increase water if you want a softer, less crunchy texture.
2. Bring to boil.
3. Reduce heat to medium-low.
4. Cover with tight-fitting lid and simmer for 25 minutes.
5. Turn heat off and let sit for 10 minutes.
6. Fluff with fork and serve.

Factoid

The advantage of consuming germinated rice is that during the germination process, levels of lysine, zinc, vitamin E, magnesium, fibre, gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA) and vitamins B6 and B12 are increased. As well, the germination process decreases the amount of phytic acid found in rice, which deters absorption of nutrients. This process also offsets the breakdown of nutrients into their simplified, more readily digestible forms.
