  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 red onion, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 2 small carrots, peeled, cut into 1/4-inch dice
  • 1 stalk celery, cut into 1/4-inch slices
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 1 1/2 cups brown rice
  • 1 teaspoon coarse salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin


  1. In a medium skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add onion, carrots, and celery. Cook until tender, 3 to 4 minutes. Add wine, and cook until most of the liquid has evaporated, about 2 minutes. Transfer to a medium bowl, and set aside to cool.

  2. Meanwhile, bring a medium saucepan of water to a boil. Stir in rice, and cook until tender, 25 to 30 minutes. Drain, and add to bowl of vegetables. Season with salt, pepper, paprika, turmeric, and cumin.

    We love this one at our house and it goes great with a nice, light white fish. I make the rice in my rice cooker and then mix it in with the vegetable mixture. My husband and little girl aren't big on cumin so I actually leave out all of spices and just season with salt and pepper and it taste great.
