Gluten-Free Apricot and Currant Rice

September 4, 2013

Apricot and currant rice from Living the Gourmet is a gluten-free side dish that's delicious with just about anything.  Serve it with grilled chicken, baked fish, or roasted vegetables.  You can also change up the ingredients based on what you have in the pantry.  I like to add slivered almonds and chopped basil.
