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.  Sauté 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.
