French Onion Rice

Rice is by far my favorite side dish. Before Taylor's Celiac diagnosis, Bread was my favorite. I still make bread, but slowly, rice has taken over my heart. I love how there are so many different ways to make it. So naturally when I saw Ramona's recipe for French Onion Savory Rice, I knew I would make it asap. None of her recipes have ever failed me! This dish didn't either. It was very good. I have an abundance of fresh herbs in my garden right now, so I got busy picking and chopping them to add fresh flavor to the rice. If you do not have fresh herbs, you can use dried. 

Gluten Free French Onion Rice
from Curry and Comfort

2 large sweet onions sliced
2 cups Jasmine Rice (rinsed)
4 cups chicken broth
2Tbs of butter
1 Tbs canola oil
1 tsp fresh thyme leaves
1 tsp fresh minced garlic
Freshly grated black pepper
1 TBSP fresh parsley leaves

1/4 cup of braggs amino acids -or- gluten free soy sauce
1 Tbs of Worcestershire sauce
1/2 Tbs of red wine vinegar
1 bay leaf

First you need to slice up your onions. I use a thin blade on my mandolin to slice them. I also prepare my mis en place. (prepare all the ingredients)
 In a large pan saute the onions on medium heat with the butter,oil and a sprinkle of salt. Stir occasionally. This took me 30 minutes, I like mine really caramelized.

Add garlic, thyme, parsley and black pepper. Add washed rice and saute with all the other ingredients in the pan.  

Add liquids, bay leaf into pan or transfer to rice cooker and add liquid. Cook until rice is cooked through and tender. Fluff rice and serve.

  1. Yayyyyy!! So glad it came out so well! :) My hubby is asking me to make this rice again. I will have to do it soon.... the only drawback is caramelizing those darn onions. But once that happens it's a breeze. Thanks for trying out the recipe. Happy Sunday! :)

  2. Wow, simple quick yet sounding very delicious! Thanks a lot for sharing.
