Rice with Fennel and Golden Raisins


Serves 4 – 8

Tools Needed:


  • 1 medium onion, chopped
  • 1 large fennel bulb, thinly sliced
  • 1/3 cup golden raisins
  • 1/2 teaspoon fennel seeds, lightly crushed
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup medium- or long-grain white rice
  • 2 cups water


  1. In a saucepan, cook onion, fennel, raisins, fennel seeds, salt and pepper in olive oil over medium heat, stirring occasionally, until softened, 8 to 10 minutes.
  2. Add rice and cook, stirring, 1 minute.  Add water and bring to a vigorous boil.  Tightly cover and cook over low heat, undisturbed, until water is absorbed, about 22 minutes.
  3. Remove from heat.  Remove lid and place a clean kitchen towel over the pan, then replace lid.  Let stand 10 minutes, and fluff with a fork.
