  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Sauté the onion for 7 to 8 minutes, until soft. Add the celery and carrots and sauté for 5 to 6 minutes. Add the garlic, thyme, and marjoram and sauté for 1 minute; set aside until the rice is cooked.

  3. Toss the cooked rice with the vegetable mixture. Stir in the cherries, pepper, parsley, and almonds. Serve warm or at room temperature.
