Nutty Brown Rice

Great way to jazz up rice as a side dish.  I really love this with pork or chicken.

  • Short grain brown rice
  • 3 tablespoons Unsalted Butter
  • 1 1⁄2 cups Mixed Nuts – walnuts and almonds go especially well
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 cup frozen green peas

Cook rice according to directions.

Heat butter in a large heavy skillet over medium heat until foam subsides. Add nuts and cook, stirring, until butter and nuts are golden brown, about 4 minutes.

Add rice, peas and nutmeg to skillet and toss to coat, until peas are cooked through.
