red onion, chopped
long-grain white rice
ground black pepper
As I started to make this recipe I realized I didn't have onions on hand. After looking through the cupboard, I narrowed down the choices to an envelope of Liptons dried soup mix and a can of French Onion Soup. FOS won out.... Pureed the onions in the soup and then added chicken broth to make up the difference in liquid. Wonderful with substitutions ~
This was pleasant and subtle - I'd call it a nice, basic "recipe" for beginner cooks. Still, it is only rice, cooked in broth rather than water, with onions added. I would strongly suggest against the full amount of pepper called for and simply add it to taste. Great to serve as support for a stronger main dish, where you wouldn't want flavors to compete.
This will be going into our regular meal rotation! I used a yellow onion (all I had - I rarely buy red) and sauteed it in half butter, half olive oil, and cut back on the pepper, to 1/4-1/2 tsp (I just grind it in). Delicious! It's a very flexible recipe provided you stay within the 1:2 rice:water ratio. We also like to add a bit of minced garlic just before adding the broth. Editing to add sometimes it takes a little longer than 20 minutes (I find it takes 25-30). Using equal portions of onion and rice (ie. 1 cup of raw onion, 1 cup of uncooked rice) seems to offer the perfect ratio (for us). Also very good if you let the onions turn translucent prior to adding the rice so they brown a bit while you "toast" the rice.
Our whole family loved this! I used olive oil instead of butter for sauteeing and added a clove of minced garlic to the onion, which was yellow. Basmati rice worked well for this, and I browned it with the oil and onion for a few minutes. I added parsley, thyme, and basil and increased the broth to 2 cups. Just a few grinds of pepper was all it needed. Try grating in a few baby carrots to give it a nice color. I'll make this again, probably adding almonds or pecans.
Awesome! I used 1/2 package dry onion soup mix along with the chicken broth. I only had plain onion on hand, so I used one small one chopped. I loved this rice! My husband like it, too.
This was good. I didn't realize that I had no chicken broth in the house, so I had to use a can of condensed beef broth, mixed with water to make 2 cups. I loved the onions, and might even add more next time. I used fresh ground pepper and don't think I put a whole teaspoon in. It was still a little too peppery. I used brown rice and just increased the simmer time to 50 minutes.
Excellent blend of onion, pepper & rice. A taste thrill!!! My husband said SAVE THIS ONE FOR COMPANY.
This is a really good and simple side dish. Like another said add pepper to taste but other than that great as written but also goes well with yellow onions.
