Ingredients

  • 2 Tbs. olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped (1 cup)
  • 1/2 cup basmati rice
  • 1/4 cup red quinoa
  • 2 tsp. curry powder
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1/2 cup cooked lentils
  • 1/2 cup finely chopped pitted prunes
  • 1/4 cup coarsely chopped pistachios

Preparation

1. Heat oil in medium skillet over medium heat. Add onion, and sauté 2 to 3 minutes, or until translucent. Add rice and quinoa, and cook until rice begins to turn opaque. Add curry powder, and cook 30 seconds. Stir in 11/2 cups water, add bay leaf, season with salt (if desired), cover, and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer 15 to 18 minutes, or until grains are tender.
