This easy recipe pleasantly proves you can dress up regular rice with a few simple additions. Best of all, it can simmer while you're preparing the rest of the meal. These delicately lemon-flavored grains go nicely with fish.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup water
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 1 cup uncooked long grain rice
  • 1/4 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/8 to 1/4 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1/4 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning

Directions

  1. In a medium saucepan, bring water, broth, lemon juice and butter to a boil. Stir in rice, basil and lemon zest. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes or until the water is absorbed. Before serving, sprinkle with lemon-pepper.
