DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Heat stock, bringing to boil and then down to simmer.
  • Melt the butter in a large non stick skillet over medium heat. Add onions and cook for 2 minutes or until the onion is softened. Add the rice and stir to coat the rice with butter. Cook 3 minutes stirring often so that the rice does not burn.
  • Transfer rice to large baking dish. Pour in hot stock. Stir in lemon juice, zest, bay leaves, salt and pepper.
  • Cover pan tightly with aluminum foil and bake for 25-30 minutes or until all liquid is absorbed and the rice is tender.
  • Fluff the rice just before serving and garnish with lemon slices and sliced green onion if desired.
