Jasmine Rice Pilaf with Apricots, Prunes, and Toasted Walnuts - Vegetarian, Gluten Free Recipe

5 years ago
 
Last Saturday night, as I was marinating the lamb for the Pomegranate Molasses Roasted Leg of Lamb, I decided to be a great daughter, and for once, do what my mom suggested - make rice!
 
You see, when bribing my mom with a home cooked lamb dinner, to get a few stems of her gorgeous peonies from the front yard, I asked her what she wanted as a side.  She asked for rice.
 
Since "plain" is not a word in my vocabulary, nor is it in hers, I decided to make a spectacular side rice dish that could shine along what proved to be a fantastic lamb recipe.  This one is it - Jasmine Rice Pilaf with Dried Apricots, Prunes, and Toasted Walnuts. 
 
Good thing for all your vegetarian and gluten-free family and friends - this recipe is delicious and filling on its own.  Just yesterday, I enjoyed the pilaf leftovers, jazzed up with soy sauce and sesame oil as a base for sauteed eggplant and vegetables. 
 
Enjoy!
