Soak the raisins in cold water. Preferably overnight or at least for couple of hours. Cook the rice according to the packaging instructions. Once it's cooked, fluff it with the fork and let it cool in a big mixing bowl.
In the meantime, chop the red onion and fry it in olive oil until golden brown. Scoop it into the mixing bowl with rice. In the same pan toast almonds, then raisins. Add them into the bowl with the rest of the ingredients.
Mix all the herbs and rice thoroughly, season with sea salt and pepper, add a dash of extra virgin olive oil if you like, and a generous squeeze of lemon.
Note from The Feedfeed: Add a little twist to this recipe by soaking the raisins in a tablespoon of hot water and a juice of 1 lemon. The result? A super tart burst of flavor that will leave you wanting more!
