Brown rice is an excellent carbohydrate to fuel up athletes of all ages. You can transform ordinary brown rice into a more appealing and nutritious dish by adding sautéed spices and vegetables. White rice can be substituted.



Heat butter, ghee or oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add spices and nuts and allow cook until fragrant; the nuts will change to a golden color. Add scallions and sauté until bright green, about 1 minute. Add currants and peas and sauté 1 to 2 minutes more.

Slowly add rice, breaking it up so the rice gets evenly coated. When all the rice has been added, continue stirring until the dish is mixed well and evenly heated.
