Take a simple rice side dish to the next level with a few simple veggies like carrots, onions, and garlic, plus broccoli florets and crunchy almonds.
Sauté onions, carrots, garlic, and rice in oil in a saucepan over high heat until vegetables begin to soften, about 5 minutes.
Add broth and bring to a boil; reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, until liquid is nearly absorbed, 12 minutes. Add broccoli and cook 3 minutes more.
Off heat, stir in almonds and lemon juice; season with salt and pepper. Let rice rest, covered, 5 minutes.
