Garlic White Rice

Course Side Dish

Ingredients

  • 2 tsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 3/4 cup uncooked jasmine or basmati rice
  • 1 1/2 cup water

Instructions

  1. In a medium pot that has a tight-fitting lid, heat olive oil over medium-high heat. (Note: do not use the lid yet, this will come later on.)

  2. Add garlic, salt, and pepper and cook for 30 seconds to 1 minute, or until fragrant.

  3. Add the rice, a pinch of salt, and 1 1/2 cups of water. Heat to boiling on high.

  4. Once boiling cover the pot with lid and reduce heat to low. Simmer for 12-14 minutes or until the water had been absorbed and the ride is tender. (Note: do not lift the lid before 12 minutes or stir the rice at any time)

  5. Remove from heat and fluff with a fork.

Tip of the Day

Even while maintaining a healthy diet, we still may need the additional support provided by a multi-vitamin. Many of the conventional foods we eat are grown in soil with depleted nutrients. Similarly, our body’s gut may be suffering an impaired ability to break down and absorb what nutrients our food does provide. We may also have developed various Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (SNP) on our genes that prevent our metabolic pathways from working optimally. A multi-vitamin can provide extra daily support to make sure your cells are getting the vitamins and minerals they need to work their best. Still, the only way to know what vitamins and minerals your body may be deficient in is through blood work. Work with Sally to make sure your nutrients are at optimal levels.
