for something really good to go with roast anything? This pilaf has lots
of carrots (which are tremendously good for you), brown rice (which not
only is better for your health, but tastes and chews better than the
white stuff), and some neat flavoring things. If you dislike licorice
flavor use only 1/8 tsp. of the crushed fennel seeds. If you don't use
any at all, it will lack flavor."
2 tsp. extra virgin olive oil
Sauté garlic in oil but do not let it brown. Stir in rice, then add all ingredients except the nuts. Bring to a boil, then turn heat down to simmer.
Cover and cook for about 45 minutes, checking to make sure the pan doesn't go dry. You may have to add a little more water. Stir in slivered almonds and serve.
