2 Tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper


Wash rice, changing the water several times.  Cut the green scallion stems diagonally into 2 inch lengths.  Finely chop the white part of the scallions.  Melt margarine in a large saucepan.  Add white scallion pieces and saute.

Add rice, 1 teaspoon salt and 2 cups chicken broth.  Bring to a boil, stir and reduce heat.  Cover and cook over low heat until rice is tender and the liquid is absorbed, about 35 minutes.
