This is a great side dish for a variety of meats. Toast the almonds to add another dimension of flavor. Especially good with Peachy Pork Chops. Could easily be made vegetarian by using vegetable broth.
- Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Saute onion, stirring, until tender. Stir in the rice, raisins, broth, salt and pepper. Bring to a boil.
- Reduce heat to low, cover and simmer 15 to 20 minutes, or until rice is cooked and liquid is absorbed. Stir in almonds before serving.
