25-30 Minutes
Serves 8

Ingredients


  • 3 cups brown rice
  • 4 qt water
  • 4 Bigelow Green Jasmine Tea bags
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 green onions, sliced thinly
  • ½ cup raisins
  • ½ cup dried cranberries
  • 1 stick (½ cup) unsalted butter
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

Instructions

Rinse rice in several changes of cold water until water runs clear. Drain well in a sieve. Bring water and tea bags to a boil, set aside. Meanwhile melt butter in large saucepan over medium heat. Add rice, green onions, salt, pepper and fruits. Stir until onions start to soften and rice starts to get white around the edges 8-10 minutes. Remove tea bags from water, squeezing well, discard. Carefully pour Bigelow tea water over rice-it will bubble and steam up- stir and reduce heat to low. Cook, covered, until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, about 25 minutes. Remove from heat, raise lid and cover rice with a cotton (non terrycloth) dishtowel, replace cover. Let stand, covered and undisturbed, 10 minutes. Open lid and remove dishtowel, fluff gently with a fork. Note: Basmati rice can be used instead of brown rice, for extra jasmine flavor.
