1 large carrot, finely diced
1 stalk celery, thinly sliced

1 apple, finely diced
6 scallions, sliced

¹∕8 tsp. kosher salt
freshly ground black pepper

• While the rice is cooking, in a large skillet, sauté the carrot and celery in the oil over medium heat until tender, 3-5 minutes.
• Stir in the apple and scallions and cook until just hot, 1-2 minutes.
• In a small bowl, mix the mustard with 2 Tbs. water.
• Drain the rice and add to the skillet. Remove from the heat and stir in the diluted mustard.
