    Serves: 4 

    • 2 tablespoons butter
    • 100g orzo (or risotto rice)
    • 80g diced onion
    • 2 cloves garlic, minced

    Prep:10min  ›  Cook:35min  ›  Ready in:45min 

    1. Melt the butter in a frying pan over medium-low heat. Cook and stir orzo or risotto rice until golden brown. Stir in onion and cook until onion becomes soft, then add garlic and cook for 1 minute. Mix in the white rice and chicken stock. Increase heat to high and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand for 5 minutes, then fluff with a fork.

    When I first decided to make this recipe, I was little dubious because the ingredients didn't seem too exciting. Boy, was I wrong! This dish was incredibly good...something that I would definitely make again! The taste/texture was similar to Rice-a-Roni, but so much better, without that packaged taste. I topped it with chopped chives for a little more color, and everyone loved it. Thanks so much for sharing!!!  -  13 Sep 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
