RAISIN PECAN RICE
This versatile rice can take the place of mashed potatoes and gravy, or bread stuffing and can even be served as a hot cereal with nut milk, I preferred a cashew yogurt beverage over mine.
The rice and accompanying gravy are sweet, but not too sweet. Just right. Upon first tasting right from the stove I thought wow this is like caramel-flavored raisin pecan rice. You might have thought it was dripping with butter.
Refrigeration didn’t weaken the flavor, but the chill firms it up more, so when reheating add a little juice – though it’s not necessary.
The SMOKY FRUIT SAUCE can also be used over cake or dairy-free ice-cream!
The JUMBO SUN-MAID RAISINS are multi-colored and more sophisticated in flavor and texture than regular raisins – an added treat for a holiday dish!
Serve plain with the sauce, or top your favorite pan-fried plant sausage – patties or links!
Makes 10 cups rice, 2-1/2 cups sauce
