1/4 Photos of Jasmine Rice With Caramelized Green Onions
Asian inspired sweet 'n' spicy jasmine rice with caramelized green onions and coarsely chopped peanuts! Now, for the record, I don't like green onions cooked, but caramelizing them is a whole other story. From Canada's Company's Coming. Don't omit the garnishes: coarsely chopped peanuts!
