Low Carb Rice Sage Stuffing
Serves 4

 
2 cups Skinny Dip Rice Pearls
1 cup sliced mushrooms
3/4 cup chopped celery
1/4 cup sliced green onion
1/8 cup slivered almonds
1/2 cup water
1 tablespoon diet margarine
1/2 teaspoon chicken broth powder
1/2 teaspoon ground sage, divided
1/8 teaspoon pepper
 
Rinse rice pearls very well and drain. Add rice pearls, water, broth granules, pepper and 1/4 teaspoon sage in a saucepan. Bring to a boil and cook until most of the liquid is gone. 
 
Melt margarine in a skillet.  Add mushrooms, green onion, celery, 1/4 teaspoon sage and almonds. Cook 3 minutes then stir into rice pearls.  Also try adding cooked sausage for spicy flavor!
 
Tip: Leftovers make a tasty soup by adding 1-2 cups broth.
