Directions

Heat the butter in a saute pan and gently fry the onions until soft and slightly golden. Add the garlic 1 minute, along with the thyme. Season with salt and pepper and set aside.

While the onions are cooking, bring a large pot of water to the boil. Salt it, as for pasta, then boil the rice until tender. Drain well. Toss with the onion mixture and heat through.

    Loved this rice!! Great flavor and texture. So easy to make… cook onions ahead of time and boil rice right before you serve. I did not chop my thyme, just peeled it off the stem right into the pan. Would be great for a dinner party. My entire family loved this rice. Would certainly be easy to change flavor profile by changing the herb. Will definitely make again and again.

    Where do I begin with this great recipe? It's a weekly staple in our home and my #1 go to side dish when in a pinch. Our 3 year old loves it as much as my foody friends and sadly I can eat it alone as a meal. It's just so good. I had heard of boiling your rice like pasta - but used my rice cooker thinking it would make the best rice. I was WRONG. Not only do you cut about 30 minutes off cooking time (mine is always perfectly done in 12 minutes it's always fluffy and light. I use long grain white rice - but have tried it with brown rice and it takes 15 minutes for me. I chop the grilled onions - add it to the rice when done and voila - a very tasty side dish is ready. BEST TIP - just make sure you salt the boiling water to the taste of the sea. KID FRIENDLY - make sure to cut the cooked onions into very small pieces and add cooked peas. I add them to the boiling water during the last few minutes.
    This is better than Rice Pilaf in my book.

    Wonderful alternative to "boring" steamed rice. I also used dried thyme and it was fine. Onions sauteed approximately 20-25 minutes and rice takes 11-12 minutes. Next time I will cut the recipe in half because it makes enough for a large crowd.
