  1. 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  2. 1 tablespoon olive oil
  3. 2 large shallots, minced
  4. 1 cup long-grain rice
  5. 8 squash blossoms, trimmed and thinly sliced (about 2 ounces)
  6. 1 cup chicken stock or canned low-sodium broth

  1. In a heavy saucepan, melt the butter in the oil over moderate heat. Add the shallots and cook, stirring, until softened but not browned, about 1 minute.
