    Rice with Buttered Onion

    I’ve been preparing this simple rice dish for many years and recently made a batch for dinner. A simple side dish that can replace your favorite starch. This recipe can serve 4 people.

    You will need:
    One medium sized sweet onion – 1/4″ dice.
    2 cups rice – Basmati works well.
    One stick unsalted butter
    Sea Salt/Ground Pepper to taste.

    In a sauce pot big enough to hold all of the onion slowly heat butter until just melting, careful not to burn, place all of the onion in the pot a simmer on low until the onion is translucent. Be careful not to add too much color to the onion. Remove from heat and hold. Prepare rice as you would normally, when rice is finished put into a bowl a little larger than the amount of rice, pour the butter/onion mixture into the rice and stir to combine completely. Season to taste.

    Prepare an oven proof glass cassarole, preferably one that has a cover, alternatively a piece of foil will do just fine. Place the rice/onion/butter mixture into the cassarole, cover and bake at 350° for 30 minutes. Uncover the dish after 20 minutes to slightly brown the top.
