Brown Rice with Figs and Golden Beets


Brown Rice with Figs and Golden Beets

The golden beets came from my garden and are slightly sweet and have a great texture.  I have to say that this dish is one of the tastiest dishes I have ever made.  This is one of those dishes that is created by looking in the fridge, pantry, garden and anywhere else you have food.  I really love how the dish came together.  The photo does not do it justice.

Ingredients:

2 golden beets

2 cups chicken stock

1 cup brown rice

1 tsp. black pepper

1 tsp. olive oil

4 dried figs, chopped into small pieces

2 green onions, minced

1 handful of cilantro, chopped

Directions:

Bake beets, wrapped in foil, in a 400 oven until they are tender.  Allow the beets to cool before peeling and chopping in small pieces.

Heat the chicken stock in a saucepan until it reaches boil.  Add the brown rice and stir.  Bring back to a boil, stir and reduce to simmer.  Cook covered until the rice has absorbed the liquid and is tender.  Season the rice with black pepper.

Heat the oil in a small skillet over medium heat.  Add the onions and figs and cook, stirring often, until the onions are soft.

Combine the rice, beets, figs and onions in a serving bowl and top with the chopped cilantro
