Recipe: Fruited Rice

Sometimes a light, refreshing dish is just what you want when you’re being treated for cancer. Try this fruited rice recipe. It’s nice for spring and summer, and it provides you with the healthy ingredients it’s so important to get when you’re recovering from an illness.

¾ cup dried apricots, cut in quarters
¾ cup dried cranberries
1 ½ cups quick cooking brown rice
1 tablespoon dried parsley or 3 to 4 tablespoons fresh parsley
1 tablespoon grated fresh orange zest, or to taste
1 ½ to 1 tablespoons low-sodium chicken bouillon granules
½ to 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
¼ cup finely minced fresh mint leaves


  1. Place dried fruit in a bowl. Add warm water to cover. Let soak for 5 to 10 minutes, or until soft. Drain well.
  2. In a large saucepan, boil water according to package directions on the rice.
  3. When water comes to a boil, add rice, fruit, parsley, zest, bouillon, salt and pepper. When water comes to a boil again, reduce heat, cover and simmer about 10 minutes or until water is absorbed and rice is tender.
  4. Remove from heat. Fluff gently with a fork, gradually mixing in mint, and serve.
