    2 teaspoons olive oil
    1 cup basmati rice
    2-1/2 cups water
    2 teaspoons finely shredded lemon peel
    4 ounces crimini or white mushrooms, sliced (1-1/2 cups)
    4 green onions, thinly sliced (1/2 cup)
    1/4 cup chopped red sweet pepper
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    2 tablespoons chopped toasted pecans
    Lemon slices (optional)

    Cook garlic in oil in a medium saucepan for 30 seconds. Add the rice, water, and bouillon granules; bring to boiling. Reduce heat, cover, and simmer 10 minutes.
