"Shallots are for babies; onions are for men; garlic is for heroes." -Anonymous

The refrigerator light goes on...

The sweetness of the pecans blends with the sharpness of the shallots and the umami flavor of the brown rice to make a dish that'll elevate the simplest piece of grilled chicken or fish.

Butternut and Sausage Stuffed Turkey Breast with Pecan Shallot Rice, two recipes from Dr. Gourmet
In a medium sauce pan, heat the water and salt. When the water boils, stir in the brown rice.

Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, partially covered, for about 45 minutes.

Do not boil away all of the liquid and do not stir the rice.

When a very small amount of liquid remains, remove the pan from the burner and let it stand, covered, for 5 minutes.

Place the butter in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. When the butter is melted, crush the rosemary and add it to the pan.

Cook for about 1 minute, then add the shallots, stir, and cook for about 3 minutes.

Add the pecans, stir, and cook for about 3 minutes.

Add the rice, stir, and serve.
