½ cup Chopped Red Sweet Pepper, sauteed
¼ cup Fresh Chives, chopped

Crushed
2 Tablesspoons Seasoned
Rice Vinegar
½ cup Toasted Slivered Almonds

1. Bring chicken broth to boil, add rice and salt and white pepper to taste. Reduce heat and cover.

2. When rice has cooked, about 20 minutes, add butter, sweet pepper, chives, and basil. Mix well. Add rice vinegar(more can be added to taste). Stir in almonds just before serving or sprinkle on top in serving dish.

I prefer to use the purple variety of basil, if available.
