Brown Rice with Cinnamon Apple Topping
A simple and straightforward dessert—brown rice is topped with a cinnamon apple and raisin sauce and light cream.
1 (20-ounce) can sliced apples
1/4 cup seedless raisins
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 to 3 teaspoons cornstarch
2 tablespoons water
1 tablespoon butter or margarine
3 to 4 cups hot cooked brown rice
1 1/2 to 2 cups light cream or half-and-half for accompaniment (optional)
- Drain apples. If necessary, add water to juice to make 1/2 cup.
- Combine apples, juice, raisins, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt in small saucepan. Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes, or until apples are tender, stirring occasionally.
- Dissolve cornstarch in water. Add to apples. Cook, stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until juice is clear and thickened. Add butter and stir until melted. Ladle over rice and serve with cream.
Makes 6 to 8 servings.
