    Leftover brown/wild rice?

    I steamed a VERY LARGE dish of brown & wild rice last night...now, what to do with leftovers?

    Any "quick & easy" recipes to share?

    I make Brown and Wild rice salad all the time.

    I toss the rice with dried cranberries, toasted slivered almonds, sliced green onions and honey mustard salad dressing. Sometimes to make a meal out of it we add chopped poached or grilled chicken.

    *****

    I've never tried this one, but it looked intriguing!

    Apricot & Rice Muffins

    1 1/2 c Flour
    2/3 c Whole Wheat Flour
    1/3 c Rice Bran
    1 tb Baking powder
    1 ts Cinnamon
    1 c Cooked, Brown Rice
    1 1/2 c Dried Apricots, diced
    1/2 c Raisins
    1/2 c Dried Prunes
    1/4 c Walnuts, chopped
    1 c No Fat Yogurt
    2/3 c Maple Syrup
    1/4 c Oil
    1 Egg, lightly beaten

    In large bowl combine flours, rice bran, baking powder and cinnamon.

    Stir in rice, apricots, raisins, prunes and walnuts.

    In a small bowl, whisk together the yogurt, syrup, oil and egg.

    Pour over dry ingredients and fold together until just moistened. Do not overmix.

    Line 18 muffin cups with paper liners. Divide the batter evenly among the cups.

    Bake at 350 F for about 45 minutes until edges and tops begin to brown.

    You can add cooked brown rice to a bread recipe-it makes for a fabulous texture and increased fibre!

    I second using it in a salad - my favorite is to toss the brown/wild rice with baby spinach leaves and sliced mushrooms - preferably "wild" ones like crimini or shitake. Then I add either a peeled and cut up fresh orange, or a small can of Mandarin orange slices, and I make a quick dressing by mixing the Mandarin juices with a little rice vinegar.

    Hey, can I come over for lunch?
