Australian Short Grain Rice with Mung Bean Pilaf

Australian Short Grain Rice with Mung Bean Pilaf

Serves 6


1/2 cup Organic sun-dried tomatoes
1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 medium Organic white onion, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 cup dried mung beans
1 cup Australian short grain brown rice
2 cups vegetable stock
1/4 teaspoon Kalahari rock salt
1/2 cup toasted walnuts


Place tomatoes in a small bowl and cover with boiling water. Let sit 10 minutes to soften and then drain and chop. Set aside.

Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and golden, about 8 minutes. Stir in mung beans, rice, broth, 2 cups water and salt and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer until all liquid is absorbed, about 40 minutes. Stir in chopped tomatoes and walnuts.
