1 cup brown rice uncooked
1 1/2 cups vegetable broth
1/2 cup orange juice (organic)
2 tbsp orange zest
1 1/2 tsp curry powder
1 1/2 cups ground cumin
1 large bell pepper, any color, seeded and chopped (1 cup)
1 medium onion, chopped (3/4 cup)
1/4 cup raisins
chopped parsley or cilantro, to taste
1 fresh peach or mango chopped


1Put rice, broth, orange juice, zest, curry powder, cumin, bell pepper, and onion in a rice cooker or covered pot and cook about 40 minutes, until rice is done. Add raisins when rice is just cooked. Stir and let stand a few minutes so raisins plump up. Add parsley or cilantro. Serve topped with chopped peach or mango, or eat as is with steamed broccoli or greens. If mango or peaches are not in season or available use mango chutney.
