This citrus rice contains almonds, celery, and onions, but no added salt for a flavorful low sodium side dish.



Heat oil in medium saucepan. Add celery and onions and saute until tender, about 10 minutes.

Add water, juices, and hot sauce. Bring to a boil. Stir in rice and bring back to a boil. Let stand covered until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed.

Stir in almonds. Serve immediately as a side dish for a fish entree

This is a great side for just about any meal. The extra step of browning the rice in oil first adds such a wonderful nutty layer of flavor to this dish. Don't want the flavors quite as subtle for your rice; then double the shallots and/or garlic. Turn this into a stand alone meal by adding pre-cooked small bite sized pieces of beef, chicken, pork or shrimp.

Keep in mind that if you choose a different type of rice than listed here you will want to adjust the amount of stock and the actual rice cooking time according to the directions for that type of rice.


  • 2 Tbsp. extra virgin oil
  • 2 cups Jasmine rice
  • 2 Tbsp. minced shallots
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 3 cups chicken stock, heated


Heat the oil in a saucepan over medium heat, add the onion and saute until slightly softened, about 1 to 2 minutes, add the garlic and saute for an additional minute, add the rice and sauté until the rice begins to lightly brown.

Pour chicken stock over the rice mixture and stir until it begins to boil, turn down heat to low, cover and simmer until the rice has absorbed the stock, about 18 to 20 minutes, fluff the rice with a fork and serve.

Add flavored boullion or spices to rice while cooking, to give it a different flavor. I've even added soups like vegetable for a great side dish.

Rice is the perfect side dish to dinner in my opinion. It is nutritious, low in fat and very inexpensive. We have it nearly every night. Here is a simple, easy and tasty way to prepare it.

Total Time: About 50 minutes

Yield: About 2 cups


  • 2 cups chicken broth, I used reduced sodium. Vegetable broth would also work nicely.
  • 1 cup brown rice
  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil


  1. Add your broth and oil to a pot. Bring to a boil.
  2. Add rice and reduce to a simmer. Cook about 45 minutes.
  3. Ad

  4. I add butter and "Bragg's Amino Acids" to the rice before eating. This is a picture of the bottle, available at most health food stores. It is similar to soy sauce, but even better!
  5. Here's their website if you want to order online. It is so healthy, and a little goes a long way. Lot's of flavor!
  6. Enjoy!

Mix rice with salt and pepper. Layer rice, chilies, sour cream and Monterey Jack cheese in greased casserole until all ingredients are used, beginning and ending with rice. Bake at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes.

Great side dish! The beef consomme gives this great flavor! This is best with brown rice.
