DIRECTIONS

  • Rice -- In a medium size sauce pan, melt the butter over medium to medium high heat and add the rice. Lightly toast the rice, not too hot, you don't want it to burn. It will take just a couple of minutes.
  • Liquid -- Add in the broth, orange juice, garlic, thyme, and celery, and cover and cook on medium low until rice has absorbed all the water. About 15 - 20 minutes. Just follow the package directions.
  • Seasoning -- After the rice has cooked. Remove from the stove and add in the scallions, cilantro, almonds, 1 tablespoon orange juice and 1 teaspoon lime juice and zest, salt and pepper to taste. Mix well.
  • Serve -- Serve in a nice bowl topped with a nice orange slice or some extra almonds. A great flavorful rice. ENJOY!
