Arroz Nicaraguense - Nicaraguan Rice

I am blessed to call friend one of the most wonderful cooks I have ever known . She is from Nicaragua and seriously can take anything and make it taste like heaven. She taught me how to make the rice and the beans that we eat with our tacos.
The recipe below serves 4-6.

2 cups of white rice
1/2 medium white onion
2 TBS oil
1 lemon zested and juiced
4 cups of water

Pour the oil in pan and add onions (on high) cook until onions begin to soften. Add the rice and cook/sautee rice until rice begins to become opaque and slightly brown. Add next 3 ingredients and bring to a boil. Cover, lower heat and simmer until rice is light and fluffy about 20-25 minutes.
