This deliciously different pilaf gets its festive color from tart cranberries, while brown rice provides wholesome flavor. It's excellent alongside poultry.

"We had this for Christmas dinner and it was not great. The picture is misleading; ours ended up pink/red when the cranberries were cooked in with the rice. The flavor is pretty boring and I don't plan to make this one again."
