This is a delicious side dish for the Holidays or any time of year. I was inspired by a recipe I came across on Dr. Fuhrman’s website that used orange juice and changed it up to create this delicious combination.

Recipe Notes

You can swap out raisins for other dried fruit such as apricots, currants, dried figs or dried cherries.

This dish freezes very well and is an excellent snack during the week. I freeze in glass containers that can be pulled out of the freezer and taken with me on-­the-­go.

Serving suggestion: Top with raw walnuts or pecans for an added crunch.
