If I think about what I would love to have on Mothers Day, Rice is right up there along with ham, fried chicken or roast, of which this recipe would compliment.
The recipes I have posted this week were recipes that I thought would be great to have this Sunday when we celebrate memories and Mom’s.
Hoping each of you a most blessed and wonderful Mothers Day……
1 tables butter
1/4 cup minced onion
2 (6 oz) packages long grain and wild rice blend*seasoning packets discarded or save for another time.
4 cups chicken broth
1/2 cup water
3/4 cup chopped pecans, toasted
1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley
1/2 teas salt
1/2 teas black pepper
1/2 teas lemon zest
2 tables fresh lemon juice
In a medium saucepan, melt butter and add onion, cooking until onion is transparent and soft.
Add rice, stirring constantly for about 1 min. Stir in broth and 1/2 cup water. Bring to a boil; cover and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 25 min or until liquid is absorbed and rice is tender.
Remove from heat and add pecans and next 5 ingredients, fluffing with fork.
*Using Uncle Ben’s Long Grain and Wild Rice Blend if possible
