North African Rice Dish


Serves 4
Inspired by: My Aunt made this for a baby shower, and I was in love! I got the recipe from her.
In a large bowl stir together:
3 cups cooked brown rice
16 dates, pitted and diced
2 large navel oranges, peeled, dived and cut into thirds
scallions, minced
1/4 cup raisins, golden or dark
1/4 cup minced fresh parsley
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/4 teaspoon cinnamon 
1/4 teaspoon cumin
Pinch of red pepper flakes
salt to taste
Serve at room temperature. 
You cannot imagine the flavor combination! Sweet, but a little spicy? You'll see. It is so good.
