Ingredients
  Chopped onion 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)

  Butter/Margarine / olive oil 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Long grain rice 1 1⁄2 Cup (24 tbs)
  Chicken broth 3 1⁄2 Cup (56 tbs)
  Salt 1 Teaspoon
  Powdered saffron 1⁄8 Teaspoon
Directions

In a large skillet, saute 1/2 cup chopped onion and 1 garlic clove, crushed, in 1/4 cup butter or margarine (or olive oil) until onion is pale gold.
Add 1 1/2 cups long grain rice and mix well.
Add 3 1/2 cups chicken broth, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/8 tsp. powdered saffron.
Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat.
Simmer 15 minutes, until all liquid is absorbed and rice is tender.
Note:
Saffron is very expensive, and may be omitted from this recipe, but there will be loss of flavor.
The same coloring can be achieved, however, by adding 2 or 3 drops yellow food coloring when broth is added.
