Serves 12

1 tablespoon olive oil
1 onion, chopped
1 1/2 cups long-grain white rice
1 cup canned vegetable broth
2 cups water
1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
15 California figs, chopped or sliced crosswise
1/4 cup dried currants
1/8 teaspoon ground saffron
Salt, to taste
2 tablespoons pine nuts, toasted

In a large frying pan over medium heat, heat the olive oil.
Add the onion and sauté until wilted, about 3 minutes.

Add the rice and continue to sauté for 2 minutes.

Add the broth, water, pepper, cinnamon, and allspice.
Increase heats to high and bring to a boil.

Stir in the figs, currants, saffron, salt, to taste and half the pine nuts.

Reduce heat to low; cover; and simmer until the rice is tender, stirring occasionally, and has absorbed all the liquid, about 30 minutes.

To serve, stir and fluff the rice; then transfer to a platter. Garnish with the remaining pine nuts.
