A terrific side dish for any sort of Middle Eastern or Moroccan meal, and it's delicious alongside Pomegranate Grilled Chicken.



Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add onions and garlic; cook until softened, about 5 minutes. Add spices and toast until fragrant, about 1 minute. Season with salt and pepper. Stir in rice and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent and fragrant, 3 to 4 minutes.

Pour in vegetable stock and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce to a simmer and cook until liquid is absorbed, about 15 minutes. Fluff rice with a fork and stir in apricots, almonds, mint and lemon zest. Cover and let sit for 10 minutes before serving.
