This rice recipe is easy to follow and tastes great. Special thanks to my friend Jenny who taught me the secret to making delicious rice (you add onion + chicken broth). I have taken her recipe and modified it a bit. It makes a great side dish and you can also squirt some lime onto the rice before you serve for extra flavor.
- 1 cup rice (I rinse my rice in cold water, you could use long grain rice too)
- 1/2 onion, chopped
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2 cups low sodium chicken broth
- salt to taste (if needed)
Add olive oil to saucepan and turn on medium heat. Add onion and cook and stir until it is lightly browned (around 3-4 minutes).
Add in rice and cook and stir until some of the rice becomes lightly browned (around 2-3 minutes).
Add in chicken broth and stir. Bring to a boil over high heat. As soon as the broth starts to boil, lower the heat to a simmer and cover with a lid.
Cook at a simmer for around 12-15 minutes until the broth is completely absorbed and the rice is tender. Check the rice - if it needs more time then let it cook some more (you may need to add a little water).
Remove the pot from the heat and let it sit with the lid on for 5 minutes. Serve warm.
