Ingredients

1 1/2 cups short-grain rice (Kamut brand mix variety rice)

2 1/2 cups cold water

4 cups chicken stock

1 parsley sprig

1/2 teaspoon black peppercorns

1 onion chopped

3 1/2 tablespoons vegetable oil

1/4 cup all-purpose flour

1 rib celery, chopped

1/2 cup thinly sliced scallion greens

Cayenne to taste

1 cup chopped boiled and shelled chestnuts

Directions

  1. In a heavy saucepan combine the rice, water, and salt to taste. Bring the water to a boil, reduce the heat to low, and cook the rice, covered, for 15 to 30 minutes, or until it is tender and the water is absorbed. In a heavy skillet, combine the oil and the flour and cook the roux over moderately low heat, stirring constantly, for 30 minutes, or until it is the color of milk chocolate. Add onion, and the celery and cook the mixture, stirring until the vegetables are softened. Add the stock, simmer the gravy for 30 minutes. The rice and the gravy may be made 1 day in advance and kept covered and chilled. Let the rice return to room temperature before continuing with the stuffing. In a large bowl combine well the rice, the gravy, the scallion greens, chopped chestnuts and salt to taste.;
