Mom's Simple Rice Pilaf
1/2 onion, diced
1 Tablespoon butter
2 Cups chicken broth (gluten-free)
1 Cup brown rice
1) Melt 1 Tablespoon of butter in a pot over medium-low heat and add onion. Cook until softened (about 3 minutes).
2) Add rice and stir to coat with butter, and let cook for three more minutes until bottom layer is slightly brown. (My mom doesn't necessarily do this step and her rice still turns out amazing.I feel I need this step in order to have it remotely taste good).
3) Add broth, bring to a low boil, cover and simmer for 50 minutes - or until all of the liquid is absorbed.
4) Fluff with a fork and serve (I used a half cup measure and kept the form).
