This is a great way to serve rice. The 'green' comes from parsley and green onion. Very tasty and easy! Found this in 2002 Quick Cooking Recipes.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Melt butter and oil in skillet and saute rice for about 3 minutes, until rice begins to brown a little. Be very careful not to burn.
  2. Add onion and parsley and saute for another minute or two. Stir constantly during these two steps.
  3. Stir in broth, cayenne and bay leaf.
  4. Bring to a boil.
  5. Reduce heat.
  6. Cover tightly and cook for 15 minutes. DO NOT LIFT THE LID WHILE IT IS COOKING!
  7. Fluff rice with a fork and serve!

This was too bland and the parsley overpowered the dish. I realized after the fact that it called for no salt, but boy could it have used some. I might try it again with more seasoning and possibly substitute cilantro for the parsley.

This rice was delicious and very quick and easy to make. I followed your directions exactly and got a tasty pot of rice which was served with baby back pork ribs, yellow beans and sweet carrotes. It was a perfect match for all the dishes, great texture and flavors. I will certainly make this again.

Great new rice dish for our family. I'm always making rice as a side dish, now I can make something different. This has great flavor! Thanks MamaK (Made for Bevy Tag 5/08) ~V
