Carrie's Island Rice

This is one of Carrie's specialties, modeled after a similar dish at Bone Fish. It goes well with Caribbean entrees, such as fish, seafood, and grilled meats or chicken. Enjoy!

  • 1 box Uncle Ben's Original Wild Rice Blend
  • 1 can coconut water (check Hispanic areas of grocery store)
  • 1/3 c. almonds, sliced
  • 1/2 large red pepper, chopped
  • butter
  • 1 small box Raisins (lunch box size--not the micro box)

Prepare rice according to package directions, substituting coconut water (plus additional water if needed) for the water called for on package. While rice is cooking, saute red pepper and almonds in a little bit of butter until almonds are toasted and pepper is slightly softened. Add to rice when rice is done; add raisins.

Serves 4-6
