Studded with nuts and spices, this rice takes only minutes to prepare, then steams to tenderness while you make the rest of the meal. For a restaurant-style presentation, pack the pilaf firmly into a rinsed (but not dried) 6-oz (175 mL) ramekin. Turn out onto a dinner plate and sprinkle with parsley.

In saucepan, heat oil over medium heat; cook carrots, shallots, garlic, caraway seeds, salt and pepper, stirring often, until carrots are softened, about 4 minutes.

Add rice, stirring to coat. Add chicken stock and water; bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and simmer until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, about 20 minutes.

Meanwhile, in small cake pan, toast almonds in 425°F (220°C) oven or in dry skillet until golden, about 4 minutes. Add to rice along with parsley; fluff with fork.
