Thai basil rice

This is one of my very favorite types of rice in the whole wide world.  And I love rice!

Thai Basil Rice

1 c jasmine rice
1 1/4 c chicken stock
1 T olive oil
1 T butter
2 shallots, minced
3 cloves of garlic, minced
1 green onion, chopped
1/2 c basil, coarsely chopped
Cayenne pepper flakes, optional

Prepare the jasmine rice ahead of time in a steamer. 

In a large non-stick skillet, melt the butter and oil together over medium heat.  Saut√© the shallots, garlic, and green onion until soft.  Add the basil and stir till wilted.  Fluff the rice with a fork and add to the skillet.  Heat through and serve with pepper flakes if desired.
