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.
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.
