Directions:
In a small heavy skillet, melt one tablespoon butter over medium low heat. Add walnut halves and a pinch of salt and saute about 2 minutes or until lightly browned. Set aside and reserve at room temperature.

In a saute pan or large skillet, heat oil and 1 tablespoon butter over low heat. Add onion, red bell pepper and celery. Cook; stirring about 10 minutes or until soft but not brown. Add rice and saute, stirring about 4 minutes.

Add boiling water, 1/2 teaspoon salt and a pinch of black pepper. Stir once, cover, and cook over low heat without stirring, 18 minutes. Taste rice, if not yet tender, simmer 2 more minutes. Remove from heat and dot with remaining 2 tablespoons butter. Cover and let stand for 10 minutes, gently stirring with a fork to distribute butter.

Transfer rice to a serving dish and sprinkle with sauted walnuts.
