Pomegranate Pilaf

Ingredients

2 tablespoons unsalted butter

1 small red onion, cut into 1/4-inch pieces

1 cup basmati or jasmine rice

1 1/2 cups homemade or low-sodium canned chicken stock

1/2 cup chopped dried apricots

1/2 cup chopped unsalted pistachios or almonds

1/2 cup pomegranate seeds (about 1/2 pomegranate)

1 tablespoon chopped fresh thyme leaves

Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper

Directions

Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium-low heat. Add onion, and cook until softened, about 4 minutes. Add rice; cook, stirring 1 minute to coat. Add chicken stock; bring to a boil. Cover, and reduce heat to low. Cook until rice has absorbed all liquid, 15 to 20 minutes.

Remove from heat, and fluff with a fork. Stir in apricots, nuts, pomegranate seeds, and thyme. Season with salt and pepper, and serve immediately.
