Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup short grain rice, soaked in water for 2 hours and drained
  • 1/4 cup pine nuts, round tips removed, plus more for garnish
  • 2 cups water
  • 1/2 tablespoon kosher salt

Directions

Using a blender, blend the rice, pine nuts, and water for about 2 minutes on high speed until the rice and pine nuts are liquefied. Strain the liquid into a medium-sized pot using a strainer and cook over medium-low heat for about 6 minutes, stirring constantly until thickened. Add the salt. Garnish with pine nuts and serve hot.

Pine Nut Shopping Tip

Look for bright green leaves free of dark spots. The leaves should be dry and are best kept wrapped in a paper towel in a bag when storing in the refrigerator.

Pine Nut Cooking Tip

When using basil in a hot recipe, add it only at the last minute. Otherwise you will lose the flavor and fragrance of the herb.
