3 to 4 scallions, sliced thinly 

2 cups long-grain rice 

1 teaspoon salt 

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper 

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley 

1/2 teaspoon lemon zest, optional 

Directions

  1. Heat the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Add the scallions and saute for 2 to 3 minutes. Add the rice and stir until the rice is fully coated with butter.
  2. Add 3 cups water and bring to a boil. Add the salt and pepper, cover and reduce the heat to a simmer. Cook until the liquid is absorbed and the rice is al dente, 18 to 20 minutes.
  3. Remove from the heat; fluff the rice with a fork; and stir in the parsley and the lemon zest, if using.
