Cashew Rice

Cashew Rice

1/4 cup olive oil
2 bay leaves
1 onion, chopped
2 cups basmati rice (if you can’t get basmati, use another type of rice but not instant)
3/4 cup cashew pieces
Salt and pepper to taste

Heat oil in the bottom of a large pot. Add bay leaves and onion and cook until onion is golden. Remove bay leaves, add rice and cashew pieces and salt and pepper and cook for about 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Add 3 cups of boiling water, bring the water back to a boil then cover and cook over low heat for about 25 minutes or until water is absorbed.
