The Rena Signature is perfect to use as a saute pan and its shape makes it easy to stir ingredients. Let’s start by preheating the utensil on medium heat. Add olive oil, chopped red onion and sauté for two minutes, and then stir with the Spoonula.
Add the rice and mix well. Add the chicken stock, lime juice and salt to taste. Stir, and then cover the Rena Signature and let the rice cook for 20 minutes or until it absorbs the liquid.
While the rice cooks, chop the cilantro. Add it to the rice after 20 minutes when the rice has absorbed the liquid, and mix. Done! Now you can serve this easy but appetizing rice and enjoy it with your meal. Share your thoughts on this recipe with us in the comments.
