Turkish Style Rice

1 cup basmati rice

2 TBSP butter (or oil)

1/2 cup dried apricots

2 cups water or broth

1 TBSP Spice by Rachel Sweet ONION SOUP MIX

1/2 cup sliced almonds



Lay the dried apricots on a cutting board and chop small. Set aside.


In a medium pot, add the butter (or oil). Turn the heat to medium and melt butter. Add the rice and stir until all grains are coated in butter. Add the tablespoon ONION SOUP MIX and stir. Cook for 1 minute, then add the 2 cups water or broth and the chopped apricots and cover. Turn the heat to high until just boiling, then turn the heat down to the lowest setting and simmer until all liquid is absorbed, approximately 20 minutes.


To serve, spoon rice into bowls and top with sliced almonds.


Enjoy!
