Rice With A Twist
If you are a “rice lover” you will love this recipe. Did you know that you can very simply change the way you prepare a dish by what you “cook it in”. For this recipe I used your basic Success Rice Boil In The Bag. Package instructions call for you to boil the rice packet in water. I decided to try something a little different to give it some new, updated flavor. Instead of using water, I boiled the bag in equal parts of chicken broth and Pinot Grigio . The difference was amazing! Then I decided to try some different combinations and came up with the following rice that will now be my “go to”. Hope you give it a try.
1 bag of Success Boil In Bag Rice
Equal parts of chicken broth and Pinot Grigio
1/2 cup Chopped pistachio nuts
1 tsp salt
1 tsp pepper
1/2 onion chopped and sauteed in butter
2 tsp of extra virgin olive oil
2 tbs of fresh basil
1/4 cup of Hormel bacon bits
In a medium pot, cook the Success rice in the chicken broth and wine according to package. Drain and set aside.
Cook the chopped onion in 2 tbs of butter and set aside
In a mixing bowl, mix the rice, onion, olive oil, salt, pepper, basil, bacon bits and pistachios. Squeeze the juice of one orange over the mixture. Mix well and serve immediately.
The combination of flavors is amazing.
