  4. Increase heat to high. Add remaining oil and rice to saucepan. Stir to coat rice with oil. Add Campbell’s Real Stock and cook, stirring, until mixture comes to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Cover. Cook for 15- 20 minutes, or until rice has absorbed stock.

CHEFS TIP: If you are unable to find Moroccan seasoning blend, make some yourself. In a bowl combine 1 tsp turmeric, 1 tsp ground coriander and 1 tsp smoked paprika. Seasoning that is left over store in a zip lock bag in the pantry.
