Rice Pilaf


1 C rice, uncooked

2 C chicken broth

2-4 Tbl olive oil

1 Tbl dried thyme

1-1/2 tsp salt

In a medium sauce pan, heat oil. Add the rice and toast on medium high until the corners of the rice are translucent and it has a nice, toasted smell.

Add the broth, thyme, and salt. Reduce the heat to a simmer and cover the pan. Cook covered for 15-18 minutes. Do not remove the lid to check how it's going. After 15 minutes, you can check, and then check every minute or two after.

Remove from the heat and fluff with a fork. Cover with a clean dishcloth and let stand for a few minutes before serving. Serve with your favorite entree.
