Rice with Orange Peel

I eat oranges very seldom, when I do is to use it in desserts and I always buy organic grown oranges.

When I don’t use the skin in a dessert, I cut the skin very fine and leave it out to dry on a rice mat. When is dry out  I save it in a glass jar with a tight lid and then use it to make this dish.


  • 2 cups of medium grain brown ricerice and orange peel
  • 4 ½ cups of sprig water
  • 2 tsps of dry orange peel pieces
  • 1 pinch of sea salt
  • 1″ piece of kombu sea vegetable soaked in little water.
  • A heavy pot with lid


Place the piece of kombu on the bottom of the pot. Wash rice drain and place into cooker and mix in the orange peel. Add water. Bring to a boil on a high flame, reduce flame and place a flame deflector under the pot. Add salt, cook for 50 minutes.

Serve with sprinkled gomasio.
