In a heavy saucepan, heat oil over medium heat and cook onion and garlic for 5 minutes, or until softened.
Stir in rice, stir rice to coat for a few minuties then stock, and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and cover; let simmer for 20 minutes, or until rice is tender, DONT OVER STIR, THIS RELEASES STARCH AND IT WILL BE STICKY, LET SIT FOR 15 MINUTES AFTER COOKING IS DONE, do not lift the lid, just take off the heat and let set.....whey donte, Stir in lemon zest, lemon juice, and basil or parsley ; taste and add pepper if you wish.
Note: this reheats very well so don't fret if this makes too much for your family.
this was really good, my husband said "whats in this", he ate every crumb and the leftovers the next day, made it with teriyaki chicken kabobs with pineapple, and ginger, brown sugar, butter carrots. He devoured it.
