Orange Herb Rice

Hello, friends!
After that long lemon cake tutorial, I want to share something easy and equally delicious.  A little skeptical about orange herb rice?  Just dare and taste!

                                                            Orange Herb Rice

Ingredients:                                    Yield:  6 servings

2 tablespoons chopped onion
                                                                                                     love the color of orange rind
2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted

2 cups water

1/2 teaspoon grated orange rind                                

1/2 cup orange juice

1 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon dried marjoram

1/8 teaspoon dried thyme

1 cup long grain rice, uncooked  (I used par broiled rice)


Cook onion in butter in a large saucepan over medium high heat, stirring constantly, until tender.  Add water and next 5 ingredients; bring to a boil.  Stir in rice.  Cover and reduce heat, and simmer 25 minutes or until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed.

Note:  You can make this recipe in a rice cooker, if you own one.

Orange Herb Rice is excellent with pork or poultry.
