A rich, creamy, robust version of risotto -- both sweet from the cocoa and honey and spicy from the red chilies.
1/2 cup diced onions
3 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup Arborio rice
3 cups water or 3 cups broth made with low-sodium broth powder
1 package Simply Organic Mole Sauce Mix
1/4 cup honey or agave syrup
In a large skillet, cook onions in olive oil until caramelized (soft and lightly brown). Add rice and brown 2 to 3 minutes.
Add water (1 cup at a time), stirring in Mole Mix with first cup. (Keep heat so dish is at a low simmer.) Finish adding water and simmer until rice is al dente.
Remove from heat and stir in honey. Serve immediately.
Add 1/4 cup raisins at end.
Substitute orzo pasta for rice.
Garnish with cilantro.
Simply Organic® Mole Sauce Mix gives the home cook access to the complex, spice-laden flavors of mole sauce. Our sauce pairs the fruity flavor of dried chilies with Fair Trade Certified™ Dutch cocoa, cumin, cinnamon, onion, and oregano. One bite and you will be saying ‘Holy Mole!’
