Apple Brown Rice Stuffing
Healthy brown rice instead of boring white bread stuffing. Crisp apples complement the nutty flavor of the brown rice and bran.
1 1/2 cups brown rice, uncooked
3 1/2 cups Apple Flavor LIBBY'S® JUICY JUICE® 100% Juice - divided use
1 apple, diced
1/2 cup onion, chopped
1/2 cup sliced celery
1/3 cup raisins
1/2 teaspoon poultry seasoning
1/4 teaspoon thyme
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
2 teaspoons butter or margarine
1/3 cup bran
1/3 cup slivered almonds
- Prepare rice according to package directions, using 3 1/4 cup apple juice for the liquid.
- Cook diced apple, chopped onion, sliced celery, raisins, poultry seasoning, thyme, and pepper in butter in a large skillet until the vegetables are tender-crisp. Stir in the cooked brown rice, bran, slivered almonds, and remaining apple juice.
