When you’re looking for a sweet side dish, this should be your next go-to. You can use white or brown rice for this easy dinner side dish, saute it with onions and add in the orange juice and raisins. The orange flavor complements any main dish and the sweetness of the golden raisins is light and not overwhelming, creating a perfect blend of sweet and savory.
Heat oil in a medium-size frying pan.
Add onion. Sauté until tender. Add rice; stir well. Cook, stirring constantly, for two minutes.
Add water, juice, and raisins. Bring to a boil, cover, reduce heat, and simmer for 20 minutes or until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed.
Add salt and pepper; toss lightly.
