- Peel the carrot and trim the celery. Dice both into small, bite-sized pieces
- Rinse the rice under water to get rid of any dust. In a small pot, combine the rice, carrot, celery, bay leaf, thyme, and vegetable broth. Cover and bring to a boil. Reduce to a simmer. Cook for about 20-25 minutes, until rice is tender.
- Remove the lid, fluff rice, and let sit a few minutes.
- Keep the seasoning pretty basic for this recipe. Especially if serving with heavy braises or roasted dishes, it’s okay to go easy on the salt.
