Food. Fun. Hop. Curried Rice with Dried Fruit
Welcome to the Newman’s Own Organics Food. Fun. Hop. event hosted by Shy Babies and Little Inspiration. For this event, we were given dried fruit from Newman’s Own Organic and asked to create a recipe using the fruit. When I saw the combination of dried cranberries, dried apples and a dried berry blend, I knew I wanted to use them in a curry dish.
This rice dish is so flavorful! The fruit re-hydrated beautifully and added a touch of sweetness to the dish. My 3 year old super eater inhaled it. I did forget to set the timer for 20 minutes and burnt the bottom a bit, but we just didn’t eat that part. I served the rice with Curried Chicken Kebabs for a full curry experience, but this would also be great with baked or grilled chicken of any kind.
- 2 cups uncooked long grain rice
- ½ cup Newman's Own Organics Dried Cranberries
- ½ cup Newman's Own Organics Dried Apples

- 1 teaspoon salt
