Ingredients
  • 2 cups basmati rice
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped, about 1/2 cup
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 3 cups hot chicken broth
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons fresh mint leaves, chopped
Directions
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

  • Examine the rice for foreign objects, but do not wash.

  • Heat the olive oil in the bottom of a heavy casserole until it begins to bubble. Add the onion and saute until translucent.
