Moroccan Pilaf

This dish has a little of everything.

This recipe is a NEW favorite and will be rotated through my meal prep and family dinner menu.

It’s simple, full of many layers of flavor, and easily made ahead…. in fact I would go as far as saying it tastes better then next day.

Here’s one more picture because it’s worth it.

Moroccan Pilaf

5 oz. pkg Mahatma Yellow Rice

2 cups brown rice

1 can garbanzo beans, drained

1 cup shredded carrots

1/2 cup slivered almonds

1/2 cup dried cranberries

1 tbsp. cinnamon

1 tsp. smoked paprika

1 tsp. kosher salt

1/2 tsp. garlic powder

1/2 cup fresh parsley, chopped

1/2 cup fresh cilantro, chopped

1 lb. kielbasa sausage

1/2 cup broth

3 green onions, diced

Prepare your yellow and brown rice according to pkg. directions. Set aside. Slice the kielbasa, or dice into bite size pieces. In a large skillet, with a little olive oil, add the kielbasa sausage, garbanzo beans, carrots, almonds and cranberries. Warm through, and stir occasionally, 4-5 minutes. Then add the seasonings, cinnamon, smoked paprika, salt and garlic. Stir to combine.

Once the seasonings are warmed through, add the rices. Stir to combine. Then add the broth, and bring to a low simmer. Stirring occasionally, until the broth is absorbed. Remove from the heat and add stir in the fresh herbs, and green onions. Makes 6 servings.

Tip- You can make this a meatless meal, by omitting the sausage. It’s still every bit delicious. XO
