      Add the chopped onion and saute', stirring often, until the onion is very soft and begins to color, about 10 minutes.

    5. 5
      After done cooking, let the rice stand, covered, for 5 minutes; spoon rice into a bowl, spoon the onions and pecans on top, and fluff with a fork or a chopstick.

      This is also good with other types of nut, such as pine nuts, pistachios, and walnuts, and also made with a mixture of white and wild rice; sliced mushrooms are also a good addition.

      Oooh, this was a yummy delicious rice dish. I used long grain brown rice which tasted great with the onion, garlic and pecan. So much better than just plain boring rice. I did like one of the other reviewers and took the left-overs to work the next day for lunch. Very filling. Thanks for sharing this wonderful recipe.

      Excellent rice side dish! I used Uncle Ben's whole grain brown rice (parboiled) and all chicken broth with walnuts. Very nice oniony, nutty flavour, with a hint of garlic. Rather than use as a side dish, on it's own, I stuffed tomatoes with it, then baked the tomatoes. they were all that was needed to go with our grilled chicken. Thanks for sharing a goodie!!

      Very rice, smooth-tasting recipe. I used short grain brown rice, and a mix of water and broth (1 cup of each). This made a great side dish, but I also brought this to work with some fruit for a couple days and made a nice lunch out of it.
