Butter Almond Citrus Rice

I am not a big fan of Rachael Ray, however I actually watched one of her Food Network shows while folding laundry a while back. She made this awesome rice and I knew I had to try it. That very evening I went to the grocery store to pick up all the ingredients. It is such a yummy treat! I was on my own for dinner tonight and I made a big bowl. Very simple and very good. Enjoy.

Getting ready to add the broth.


Everything is all mixed and ready to simmer.


The delicious results.

2 T Butter (I prefer Smart Balance spread)

1/2 cup Slivered or Sliced Almonds

2 cups White Rice (I use Jasmine Rice)

1 Orange zested

1 Lemon zested

1 quart chicken stock

Heat a sauce pot over medium heat, add butter to the pot and melt. Add almonds and toast 3 to 4 minutes. Add rice and the zest of an orange and a lemon then turn the rice to coat, cook 1 minute. Add stock and bring to boil, reduce to simmer, cover and cook 17 to 18 minutes.
