Rice Pilaf with Ras el Hanout, Cranberries and Cashew nuts

2 comments Dec 16th, 2011 | By | Category: Recipes

Initially I had cooked this Pilaf as a side course. In the end I liked it so much that I decided for it to be a main course. It is a easy to make and very versatile dish that I prepared in a rice cooker. You just add all the ingredients and turn on the rice cooker.

Preparation time: 5 minutes

cooking time: 25 minutes

difficulty: easy

Ingredients for 2 hungry eaters:

  • 1 cup of jasmin rice
  • 2 cups of vegetable broth
  • 4 small carrots
  • 2 tbsp cashew nuts
  • 2 tbsp of Cranberries, dried
  • 1 tbsp of raisins
  • 1 tbsp of Ras el Hanout
  • a pinch of Cyenne
  • some salt
  • 2 tbsp of olive oil


Add the washed rice to the rice cooker. Chop up the washed carrots into thin slices. Chop up the nuts with a knife and add them to the rice. Now add all the remaining ingredients and the water. Stir well, close the rice cooker and switch on.

Season to taste with some salt.

Serve as side dish or as main.

The German version of the recipe can be found here.
