  • 1 cup uncooked 7-grain pilaf blend (1 sleeve)
  • 2 navel oranges
  • 1 tbsp. olive oil
  • 1 large green onion, chopped (about 1/4 cup)
  • 1/4 cup dried currants
  • 1 tbsp. chopped fresh tarragon


  1. In a small saucepan prepare pilaf according to package directions. Remove saucepan from heat; let stand, covered, 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, prepare orange segments. Using a small paring knife, cut away peel. Working over a large bowl to catch the juice, cut between membranes to remove orange segments. Squeeze membranes over bowl to release additional juice. (Juice should measure about 3 tablespoons.) Add oil, onion, currants and tarragon; toss lightly to combine.
  3. Add pilaf to orange mixture; toss gently to combine. Season with pepper to taste, and serve.
