Depending on what you use for rice, this can be a EXTREMELY easy recipe that can compliment any entree from turkey to chicken or even fish! Save time by using precooked, bagged rice pilaf mix; add a few dashes of garlic powder and grated Parmesan, if you like!

Instructions Checklist
  • 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.

  • 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.

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

This was a hit. I did think it was a bit sweet. I put some hot pepper flakes in it. I also cooked the cranberries with the rice. Next time I will skip the cranberry sauce and just go with the cranberries. Read More
