A fun and tasty alternative to potatoes, this savory rice is a popular side dish at gatherings. I especially like its mild soy sauce flavor and flecks of green onion and toasted slivered almonds. -Annette Rodgers, Rosston, Arkansas

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup butter, cubed
  • 4 cups uncooked long grain rice
  • 8 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons chicken bouillon granules
  • 10 green onions, thinly sliced
  • 2/3 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 cup slivered almonds, toasted

Directions

  1. In a Dutch oven, melt butter. Add rice; cook and stir for 3-5 minutes or until lightly browned. Add water and bouillon; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed. Remove from the heat; stir in the onions and soy sauce. Cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Stir in almonds.
