Getting Healthy from the Inside Out

Brown rice Pilaf

You know, some foods I love photographing… Usually it’s treats, snacks, and desserts. Some foods I dislike photographing…

This is one of them! You can’t really make rice look “pretty”

… Good thing it’s so yummy!

I found this recipe in a pamphlet while sitting in the doctors office. Don’t know what it was, but it sounded too delish to pass up!



1 medium onion, diced
1 stalk celery
1 cup wild rice
1 cup brown rice
2 1/2 cups water
2 cups vegetable broth
1/4 cup raisins
1/4 cup dried apricots, diced
1/4 cup walnuts
1/4 tsp dried oregano*
1 tbsp fresh minced oregano*


Heat 1 tbsp coconut oil in skillet over medium heat. Sauté the onion and celery for 5 minutes. Add rice and sauté for additional 5 minutes.

Add water, broth, raisins, and apricots; bring to a boil.

Reduce heat, bring to a simmer and allow water to absorb and rice to become tender; about 50 minutes.

Stir in walnuts, and dried oregano. Top with fresh oregano and serve.

*original recipe called for sage

Note: I added in 2 minced mushrooms when I stirred in the walnuts.
