I love this rice! I am actually having some right now.
- 1/4 lb butter
- 2 cups uncooked rice (Uncle Ben’s long grain converted rice works well)
- 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice

1 Heat butter in a heavy skillet. When it’s hot, add the rice and, stirring constantly, saute on medium heat until transparent but not brown.
2 Add the lemon juice, chicken broth, and salt.
3 Cover and simmer for 20 minutes.
4 Remove the pan from the heat and let pilaf stand uncovered for 5 minutes before serving.

Cheesy Broccoli Rice
- 1 lb pkg. frozen chopped broccoli
- 1 can condensed cream of mushroom soup
- 1 jar Cheez Whiz
- 1 cube butter (1/2 cup)
- 1/2 cup diced celery
- 1/2 cup diced onion
- 1 1/3 cup Minute Rice (uncooked)
Sprinkle the frozen broccoli, rice, celery and onion in a 13×9 baking dish. Melt the butter, Cheez Whiz, and mushroom soup in a medium saucepan. Pour over the other ingredients. Mix well. Cover with foil and bake in a 350 degree oven for 45 minutes, or until rice is done.
This recipe is a great side dish but also can be made the main dish if you add a pound of diced cooked chicken breast.

Mix egg with 3 drops of soy and 3 drops of sesame oil; set aside. Add 1/2 tbsp oil to wok, swirling to coat surfaces; add egg mixture; working quickly, swirl egg until egg sets against wok; when egg puffs, flip egg and cook other side briefly; remove from wok, and chop into small pieces.
