  1. Rinse rice under cold water and drain well.

  2. Combine onion, butter, and garlic in a medium saucepan. Cook over medium heat to soften, about 3 minutes.

  3. Add rice and cook until it begins to smell toasted and turn slightly golden, about 7-10 minutes.

  4. Add remaining ingredients except green onions and almonds. Bring to a boil, cover and reduce heat to a low simmer for 15-20 minutes or until liquid is absorbed.
  5. Remove from the heat and allow to sit covered for 5 minutes.

  6. Fluff with a fork and garnish with almonds and parsley.
