  1. In a deep sauté pan or saucepan, keep the oil over medium heat and sauté onion and garlic for two to three minutes.
  2. Add the rice and continue cooking, stirring, for two minutes, until coated with oil. Add the stock, stirring and scraping the sides of the pan, until the rice is cooked. Season to taste with salt. Cover and simmer over low heat for 25 to 30 minutes.
  3. Set aside, covered, to steam for five to six minutes. Uncover and test for doneness. If the liquid is not absorbed in the rice is not tender, return to the stove for a few minutes. Then add the feta, scallions and cilantro. Stir gently just to mix.
  4. Serve immediately.
