Butternut Pecan Rice

Submitted by: CAERYN


Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    Veggie Broth (4 Cups)
    Brown Rice (2 Cups)
    Butternut Squash, cubed (1 Squash)
    Pecans, halved (1 Cup)
    Cinammon (1 Tsp)
    Nutmeg (1/2 Tsp)

Directions

Prepare rice according to package instructions (traditionally, ~40 minutes) using the veggie broth instead of water.

While rice is cooking, prepare the butternut squash. Cut the squash into quarters and place in a baking dish with ~1 inch of water. Place in the oven at ~350 F for approximately 20 minutes or until the skin is easily peeled and the squash is slightly softened. Remove the skin and cut the squash into smaller pieces that will easily fit into a food processor.

Once the butternut squash is cut, place in food processor with the pecans, cinammon, and nutmeg. "Process" the mix until everything is evenly mixed and finely chopped. Set aside until the rice is finished.

When the rice is finished, combine with the squash/nut mix.

Makes approximately 8 1-cup servings.
