Simple Rice Pilaf

Serves 6

1 1/2 cups white rice (preferably long grain)
1/2 cup wild rice blend
1 tablespoon butter
1/2 cup chopped yellow onionĀ 
4 cups of chicken stock, preferably homemadeĀ 
1 teaspoon table salt
1/4 teaspoon ground pepper

In a bowl, blend white and wild rice and soak in water for 15-30 minutes. While the rice is soaking, using medium-high heat in a large saute pan with a lid, saute diced onion in butter until fragrant.

Drain rice well and add to onion. Add chicken broth and salt and pepper. Stir and cover with lid and cook until broth is in full boil, 10-15 minutes depending on the amount of rice. Quickly reduce the heat to low simmer and cook until all broth is absorbed into the rice, about 20-30 minutes. Do not uncover the lid at any time. Fluff the rice and serve with your favorite main dish.
