Pine Nut Rice

by Dinner Hero on February 13, 2013

My friend, Lori, shared this recipe with me years ago.  It goes well with any sauteed meat/veggie dish.  However, it’s such a great twist to just plain rice, that I fix it quite a bit for a side dish.

Find pine nuts in the produce section of the grocery store.  Keep them in the freezer, otherwise they will spoil very quickly.
