Healthy brown rice instead of boring white bread stuffing. Crisp apples compliment the nutty flavor of the brown rice and bran.
INGREDIENTS (for 8 servings):
- 1 1/2 cups brown rice, uncooked
- 3 1/2 cups Apple Flavor LIBBY'S® JUICY JUICE® 100% Juice, divided
- 1 apple, diced
- 1/2 cup onion, chopped
- 1/2 cup celery, sliced
- 1/3 cup raisins
- 1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
- 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
- 1/4 teaspoon pepper
- 2 teaspoons margarine
- 1/3 cup bran
- 1/3 cup slivered almonds
Prepare rice according to package directions, using 3 1/4 cup apple juice for the liquid.
Cook diced apple, chopped onion, sliced celery, raisins, poultry seasoning, thyme, and pepper in margarine in a large skillet until the vegetables are tender-crisp. Stir in the cooked brown rice, bran, slivered almonds, and remaining apple juice.
Use as stuffing for poultry or pork roast, or bake at 350 degrees for 35 minutes.
