Directions:
Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 350 degress. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring, until soft, about 3 to 4 minutes. Add the rice and cook, stirring, until opaque and nutty in aroma, about 2 minutes. Add the water, chicken broth, and salt and bring to a boil. Cover the pan with a tight-fitting lid. Transfer to the oven, and bake until the rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed, 25 to 30 minutes. Remove the pan from the oven and add the peas and scallions, if desired. Toss gently to combine, then replace the lid and allow the rice to sit, undisturbed, for 5 to 10 minutes. Serve hot.
