Cashew Nut Rice


You can serve this in an attractive glass bowl. You will need:


4 oz/100 gm onion, very finely chopped

one stick celery, halved lengthwise, then sliced finely

one tablespoon sunflower oil

225 g. long grain brown rice

450 ml water

150 ml dry white wine

bay leaf

100 g cashew nuts

freshly ground black pepper

fresh coriander leaves


Heat the onion and celery in the oil in a pan for 2 minutes. Add the rice and cook for another minute to turn the grains transparent. Stir in the water, wine and bay leaf. Cover and bring to the boil. Reduce to a simmer for 20-25 minutes, according to the type of rice used. The grains should be tender, and if any water remains uncover the pan and turn up the heat for a minute or two. Stir in the cashews and season to taste. Discard the bay leaf. Garnish with the fresh herb.
