Brown Rice Pilaf with Prosciutto & Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Brown Rice Pilaf with Prosciutto & Sun-Dried Tomatoes

Serves 4

This is hearty, satisfying fare that we've dished up in entrée-sized portions because all you need to make it a meal is a big green salad. The unique addition of tomato paste contributes wonderful rich flavor.

  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/4 pound thinly sliced prosciutto, roughly chopped
  • 1 cup long-grain brown rice
  • 2 cups water or broth
  • 2 tablespoons tomato paste

In a medium saucepot, sauté garlic and prosciutto in warmed oil over medium-high heat, stirring often, 6 to 8 minutes. Stir in rice, water or broth, tomato paste, salt and pepper and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until liquid is completely absorbed, about 45 minutes. Remove covered pot from heat and let sit 10 minutes; uncover and fluff with fork. Transfer to a large bowl, add sun-dried tomatoes, basil and pine nuts (optional) and toss to combine.
