Curried meatballs and apricot rice

Chris and I were browsing at Barnes & Noble on Friday, and I took a peak at a test kitchen book I’d been intrigued by for a while. The cookbook, Simple Weeknight Favorites, is pretty similar to others we have so I left it on the shelf. However, I did a quick Google search for this recipe to see if someone had already posted it. Success!


It was not complicated but did take some time. I don’t know if I’m ready to make it a weeknight meal yet, but it is worth making again.

We found it…Simple Weeknight Favorites but posted here with one error.
We made it…but it should only have 1 cup of rice in case you try it. We just set aside the extra cup to freeze for a later meal. We did switch to brown rice and it was fine with a longer cooking time. We used turkey, but chicken would be good, too. Other than that we did as written.
We ate it…3 times/6 servings along with a veggie side (we did roasted carrots and parsnips).
We thought…the apricots were tasty, but the meatballs were great (though the onions could be minced so they don’t fall out).
