I would have to say that my least favorite chef on The Food Network would have to be Rachael Ray…she just annoys me! I think her recipes are ok, I mean they are great for people who are pressed for time, or need something good, quick, because her meals only take 30 minutes. I can’t watch her, she just annoys the heck out of me! Her voice, her 100’s of hand gestures. Who uses their hands that much when they talk? her! and I hate how she renamed Olive oil to EVOO…I just really have nothing nice to say about her. So I will stop there with how I dislike her! Some people think she is just so great. I am not one of them!
But I did make this recipe by her and it was pretty good…
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
- 1 1/4 cups light brown rice or white rice
- 2 limes, zested, 1 lime, juiced
- 2 cups chicken stock
- 3 to 4 thin scallions, whites and greens, chopped
Heat the oil in sauce pot over medium to medium-high heat. Stir in the rice and toast for 1 minute.
Add the lime zest
and stock, bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer, covered, for 18 minutes. Add the green onions and the juice of 1 lime. Fluff with fork, transfer to a serving bowl and serve.
I like to put my rice in this little dish because it makes it look pretty and its 1 cup, so it helps portion control as well!
