Directions

  1. Bring the brown rice and 1 1/2 cup of water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce the heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender and almost all the liquid has been absorbed, 45 to 50 minutes. Mash the cranberry sauce in a small bowl with a fork until almost smooth, and stir the sauce into the brown rice, mixing well to tint the rice a slight pink color. Cover, and let steam for about 5 minutes.
  2. Place the dried cranberries into a microwave-safe bowl, and cook on high setting in a microwave oven just until hot, about 30 seconds. Stir the cranberries into the rice. Season to taste with salt and black pepper; serve sprinkled with pecans.

I really enjoyed this recipe and used white rice instead of brown. Couldn't get my 3 y.o. to eat the cranberries but he like the rice! Will have it again!

Def. for a cranberry lover. I used white rice and sunflower seeds as substitutes. I enjoyed the dried warmed cranberries. Great alternative dish.
