2 tablespoons Salted butter, 1/2 cup Onion, diced 2 cups Uncooked white rice 3.5 cups Vegetable broth 1/2 teaspoon Dried Thyme 1.5 teaspoons Kosher salt 1/4 teaspoon Pepper 1/4 cup Golden raisins 1/4 cup Dried cranberries 1 cup Chopped pecans 2 tablespoons Fresh parsley

Saute pecans.  Add pecans to a skillet heated over medium heat and saute them until they are lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Set pecans aside.

Cook onions. Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in the same skillet over medium high heat. Add the chopped onion and cook until the onions are tender, about 10 minutes.

Add broth. Add broth, salt, thyme, and pepper. Bring the liquid to a boil then cover and reduce to a simmer until rice is tender and all liquid is absorbed, about 20 minutes.

Fluff rice. Once the rice is done remove from the heat and use a fork to fluff the rice. Gently toss the dried cranberries, golden raisins, pecans and parsley into the mixture. Place the lid back on and let sit (off of the heat) for 10 minutes before serving.
