Share This Recipe:


1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
3/4 cup uncooked medium grain rice
1/4 cup chicken stock
1/4 cup chopped pitted prunes
1 cup apple, peeled, cored and chopped
1/4 cup toasted almonds
1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
1 egg beaten lightly
1/4 cup golden raisins
salt and freshly ground black pepper


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°.

  2. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat, stir in onion and sausage and cook for 5 minutes until slightly brown. Add the rice and stir until well coated. Pour in the chicken stock, bring to a boil, and reduce to a simmer.

  3. Cover and cook until the rice is tender and the liquid has been absorbed, about 20 minutes.

  4. Put the rice in a large bowl, stir in the remaining ingredients and mix well. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Place the rice mixture in a well-oiled casserole dish, cover and bake at 350° for 30 minutes.
