Prep time 15 mins
Cook time 30 mins
Yield Makes 6 servings


  • 1/2 cup chopped red bell pepper
  • 6 green onions, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 cups uncooked long-grain white rice
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 1 tablespoon grated orange rind
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

How to Make It

  1. Sauté bell pepper and green onions in hot oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat 5 to 7 minutes or until tender. Stir in rice, and sauté 1 minute. Stir in broth, and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until rice is tender. Stir in remaining ingredients.

  2. Tip: To make ahead, cook bell pepper, green onions, and rice according to directions. Refrigerate. At serving time, reheat in a microwave-safe serving dish covered loosely with plastic wrap; stir in orange rind, salt, and pepper just before serving.
