What inevitably comes to mind when you think of side dishes? Rice, no doubt. There are a lot of varieties out there, but we like basmati--also known as "popcorn rice" because of it's unique flavor and aroma--the best. It's' the perfect foundation for the bold flavors of cilantro and green onions.

How to Make It

Heat olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add almonds, and sauté for 2 minutes or until lightly browned. Add the rice and garlic, and sauté for 2 minutes. Stir in the water and broth, and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 15 minutes or until liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat; stir in cilantro and the remaining ingredients.
