  • 2 cups Orange Juice
  • 2 cups Veggie Broth
  • 2 cups Risotto Rice
  • 1 15 oz. can Mandarin Oranges in light syrup
  • 5 oz. Spinach (optional greens add)
  • 3 tbsp. chopped Cashews (optional)
  • Sea Salt to taste
  1. Mix Juice & Rice together in IP

  3. Press "Manual" button & reduce time to 5 minutes
  4. When done, use quick release method
  5. Stir in Spinach until wilted, Mandarin Oranges with Juice & Cashew pieces

Hoff Thoughts: I don't actually chop my Cashews, I just throw them in a sandwich bag and bash them a bit with a heavy object, ah...Zen.  I also don't buy whole Cashews, too pricey!  Instead, I opt for their cheaper, yet still tasty alternative - Cashew pieces.  As I typically blend them to make sauces or break them into tiny pieces for a hit of crunch in dishes such as this, the cost effective pieces work out perfectly!
