Highlights & Tips

The easiest and quickest way to prepare this dish is to use an Instant Pot or Microwave.  You can cook a medium sized sweet potato in less than five minutes using one of these tools!  If you don't have one of these kitchen tools then you can certainly use your oven cooking a potato at 375 degrees for 40-45 minutes typically to be fully cooked.

The dish is best with fresh herbs, cooking the rice in broth and roasting the pine nuts.  However, if money is tight you can certainly skip these by using water to cook the rice and use dry herbs and skip the nuts all together!  The dish will still taste great.

Budget Tips

If you want to reduce some cost with this dish skip the vegetable broth and just use water to cook the rice. 

 

Pine nuts are also somewhat pricy so this is an easy thing to go without if you need to save some money! 

 

Use dried herbs instead of fresh herbs and purchase those in the bulk section of your grocery store and use your own glass jars or plastic bags for storage.
